Title: Valenzgrammatik des Deutschen [German Valency Grammar]
Subtitle: Eine Einf├╝hrung
Written By: Klaus Welke
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110195385-1
Series Title: De Gruyter Studium
Description:

Valency grammar assumes that words, e.g. verbs, have a valency that
determines the design of the construction - in the case of verbs the
construction of the sentence. Construction grammar, a current direction
of grammar research, does not start from the word and go to the
sentence (to the construction), but as a matter of principle always starts
from the construction. Both approaches are presented together in this
book to show how word and construction determine each other
reciprocally and how creative language usage develops from this
reciprocal relationship.
