Constructional Approaches to Language
The topics range from descriptions of grammatical phenomena in different languages to theoretical issues concerning language acquisition, language change, and language use. The foundation of constructional research is provided by the model known as Construction Grammar (including Frame Semantics), initially developed in the 1980s by Charles Fillmore, a founding member of CAL’s Advisory Board. The book series publishes studies in which this model is developed in new directions and extended through alternative approaches. Such approaches include cognitive grammar, conceptual semantics, interaction and discourse, as well as typologically motivated alternatives, with implications both for constructional theories and for their applications in related fields such as communication studies, computational linguistics, AI, neurology, psychology, sociology and sociolinguistics, applied linguistics and anthropology.
This peer-reviewed series is committed to innovative research and will include monographs, thematic collections of articles, and introductory textbooks.
