Human Cognitive Processing (HCP) ; volume 58
Within Construction Grammar, this volume moves away from a compartmentalized view of constructions with the aim of providing a more holistic description of grammar. Thus, the book brings together analyses that look at constructional families within the "constructicon" of such languages as English, Spanish, German, Polish, Croatian, and Hungarian. Part 1 focuses on how different analytical perspectives may be applied to comparable and/or connected constructions with a view to enhancing our understanding of their similarities, differences, and relations. Part 2 contributes to the state of the art in Construction Grammar in three ways: (i) by reconciling aspects of various constructionist analyses; (ii) by determining to what extent competing constructionist perspectives can offer more adequate approaches to specific analytical needs; and (iii) by challenging central assumptions within Construction Grammar. This book is expected to encourage further research into the anatomy of constructional families and their interrelations in all domains of constructional organization.
"The ten contributions to this volume originated as oral presentations delivered at The 3rd International Conference on Meaning Construction, Meaning Interpretation: Applications and Implications (CRAL 2013), which was held in Logroño (La Rioja, Spain) from July 18 to July 20, 2013"--Preface.
