Up to now, most research in Construction Grammar has focused on single languages, most notably English. This volume aims to broaden the scope of Construction Grammar towards issues in bi- and multilingualism, second language learning, and generalizations across different languages and language varieties. The contributions in this volume show that speakers entertain generalizations across their repertoire of languages, which holds important implications for a multilingual Construction Grammar.

“This is a timely collection of papers about constructions in multilingual contexts. The papers in this volume present new views of grammatical constructions in heterogeneous speech communities of

various types and they open up a compelling new perspective on both novel issues and age-old problems of bilingualism, multilingualism, language contact, and translation. The editors have done a marvelous job in assembling a high quality set of papers showing how the principles of Construction Grammar can be fruitfully applied to linguistic phenomena that transcend homogeneous speech communities.”
“In conclusion, by focusing on phenomena occurring in multilingual contexts, the studies included in Constructions across Grammars not only contribute to Construction Grammar and linguistics in general; they also help to fill a gap often observed in linguistic models: how general models and approaches apply to situations of bilingualism and language contact. Certainly, scholars interested in the topics and phenomena addressed in this book are looking forward to the continuation of this endeavor started by Martin Hilpert and Jan-Ola Östman.”
