Constructions and Frames is an international peer-reviewed journal that
provides a forum for construction-based approaches to language analysis.
Constructional models emphasize the role of constructions, as conventional
pairings of meaning and form, in stating language-specific and cross-linguistic
generalizations and in accounting equally for regular and semi-regular patterns.
Frame Semantics, which has become a semantic complement of some constructional
approaches, elaborates the analysis of form-meaning relationships by focusing on
lexical semantic issues that are relevant to grammatical structure. The
preoccupation of constructional theories with meaning allows for natural
integration of grammatical inquiry with semantic, pragmatic, and discourse
research; often coupled with corpus evidence, this orientation also enriches
current perspectives on language acquisition, language change, and language use.

Constructions and Frames publishes articles which range from descriptions of
grammatical phenomena in different languages to constructionally-oriented work
in cognitive linguistics, grammaticalization theory, typology, conversation
analysis and interactional linguistics, poetics, and sociolinguistics. Articles
that explore applications to or implications for related fields, such as
communication studies, computational linguistics, lexicography, psychology, and
anthropology are also invited.

The aim of the journal is to promote innovative research that extends
constructional approaches in new directions and along interdisciplinary paths.
