Meeting Description:

Seminar n° 55.
Construction Grammar(s) meets Cognitive Semantics: Theoretical, Lexicographic
and Acquisitional Perspectives

Call for Papers

The seminar is intended to be a forum for the discussion of the notion of
construction conceived of a learned pairing of form with semantic and discursive
function, along with its psychological status based on language processing and
acquisition. Specifically, the seminar aims to promote interaction and
collaboration among researchers interested in areas of mainly (though not
exclusively) present-day English such as: the definition of construction and
its relation to similar alternative notions such as templates or fragments, the
division of labour between lexical semantics and constructional semantics, the
combination of constructions, the grammar-lexicon continuum, the interaction
between lexical and constructional templates, coercion and/or metonymic
operations, illocutionary constructions, database vs. knowledge-base
dictionaries, the impact of frequency on the status of construction as well as a
facilitatory factor of language learning, the role of constructions in a
context-based view of grammaticalization, etc.
