Constructions and Frames

Call Information:
Constructions and Frames is an international peer-reviewed journal, published by John Benjamins, that provides a forum for construction-based approaches to language analysis. Constructional models emphasize the role of constructions in stating language-specific and cross-linguistic generalizations. Frame Semantics elaborates the analysis of form-meaning relationships by focusing on lexical semantic issues that are relevant to grammatical structure.

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, interactional linguistics, poetics, and sociolinguistics. Articles that explore applications to related fields, e.g. communication studies, computational linguistics, lexicography, psychology, and anthropology, are also invited.

We invite submissions on relevant topics for Volume 6, Issue 2 and Volume 7, Issue 1.
