Meeting Description:

This is the second workshop in the series 'Constructions in the Nordics'. Scholars working on Nordic languages from a Construction Grammar perspective as well as constructionists from the Nordic countries are welcome.

Program Information:

This second CxGN workshop on construction grammar in a Nordic context is a forum for both constructionist researchers in the Nordic countries, regardless of what languages they are studying, and linguists applying constructionist approaches to any of the Nordic languages, regardless of where they are studying.

Through a series of CxG workshops, which started out at Kiel University in 2019, CxGN aims at giving the vibrant but somewhat scattered Nordic CxG community a platform to learn more about each other’s work and form new collaborations.

We welcome 30-minute presentations in English, Danish, Norwegian or Swedish. Submit your abstracts (max. 500 words including examples, excluding references) at by June 3, 2020.

Registration will be open from 5 July until 1 October 2020.
