Book Information


Title: Design Patterns in Fluid Construction Grammar
Edited By: Luc Steels
Series Title: Constructional Approaches to Language 11

Construction Grammar is enthusiastically embraced by a growing group of
linguists who find it a natural way to formulate their analyses. But so far there is
no widespread formalization of construction grammar with a solid computational
implementation. Fluid Construction Grammar attempts to fill this gap. It is a fully
operational computational framework capturing many key concepts in
construction grammar. The present book is the first extensive publication
describing this framework. In addition to general introductions, it gives a number
of concrete examples through a series of linguistically challenging case studies,
including phrase structure, case grammar, and modality. The book is suited
both for linguists who want to know what Fluid Construction Grammar looks like
and for computational linguists who may want to use this computational
framework for their own experiments or applications.
