Abstract:

The aim of this issue is to provide an overview of current research into
frame semantics and construction grammar, and to stimulate the dialogue
between these frameworks and the notion of framing in other linguistic
traditions. Using Fillmore's frame semantics as a common source of
inspiration, the volume examines a spectrum of semantic issues, from a
theoretical and more applied perspective. Among the topics that are
addressed are the relation between frames and other (cognitive) grammatical
models, ontologies and discourse analysis, as well as the methodological
difference between top-down and bottom-up approaches. The eight articles on
grammatical, lexical and discursive forms cover issues as diverse as
political discourse in Belgium, France and the USA, Czech function words,
English communication verbs, modality and the relation between
instrumentals and causality in LSP. Researchers from theoretical and
applied linguistics interested in the form/meaning interface and authentic
discourse data may appreciate this work as a valuable resource for further
reflection on the relation between grammar and the lexicon, frames and
ontology.
