Title: Construction Grammars
Subtitle: Cognitive grounding and theoretical extensions
Edited By: Jan-Ola Östman
Mirjam Fried
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CAL%203
Series Title: Constructional Approaches to Language 3
Description:

The notion 'construction' has become indispensable in present-day
linguistics and in language studies in general. This volume extends the
traditional domain of Construction Grammar (CxG) in several directions, all
with a cognitive basis. Addressing a number of issues (such as coercion,
discourse patterning, language change), the contributions show how CxG must
be part and parcel of cognitively oriented studies of language, including
language universals. The volume also gives informative accounts of how the
notion 'construction' is developed in approaches that are conceptually
close to, and relatively compatible with, CxG: Conceptual Semantics, Word
Grammar, Cognitive Grammar, Embodied Construction Grammar, and Radical
Construction Grammar.
