Title: Locative Alternation
Subtitle: A lexical-constructional approach
Written By: Seizi Iwata
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CAL%206
Series Title: Constructional Approaches to Language 6
Description:

The aim of the present volume is two-fold: to give a coherent account of
the locative alternation in English, and to develop a constructional theory
that overcomes a number of problems in earlier constructional accounts. The
lexical-constructional account proposed here is characterized by two main
features. On the one hand, it emphasizes the need for a detailed
examination of verb meanings. On the other, it introduces lower-level
constructions such as verb-class-specific constructions and verb-specific
constructions, and makes full use of these lower-level constructions in
accounting for alternation phenomena. Rather than being a completely new
version of construction grammar, the proposed lexical-constructional
account is an automatic consequence of the basic tenet of constructional
approaches as being usage-based.
