Chapter 1. Introduction: Constructicons and constructicography. Constructicography: Constructicon development across languages, Lyngfelt, Benjamin, Lars Borin, Kyoko Ohara and Tiago Timponi Torrent (eds.), pp. 1–182018.
A constructicon is on the one hand a theoretical conception of language as a structured inventory of constructions, and on the other hand a collection of construction descriptions, essentially a practical instantiation of the former concept. In this introductory chapter, we review the role of these… read more | Chapter
Chapter 3. Constructicography at work: Theory meets practice in the Swedish constructicon. Constructicography: Constructicon development across languages, Lyngfelt, Benjamin, Lars Borin, Kyoko Ohara and Tiago Timponi Torrent (eds.), pp. 41–1062018.
This chapter addresses central topics in constructicography from the viewpoint of the Swedish constructicon project (SweCcn), focusing on practical constructicon development. The full process of construction description is described and discussed, from selection via corpus analysis to finished… read more | Chapter
Chapter 9. Aligning constructicons across languages: A trilingual comparison between English, Swedish, and Brazilian Portuguese. Constructicography: Constructicon development across languages, Lyngfelt, Benjamin, Lars Borin, Kyoko Ohara and Tiago Timponi Torrent (eds.), pp. 255–3022018.
This chapter addresses interlingual relations between constructions. The perspective is contrastive rather than typological, with an aim towards multilingual constructicon development. Building on previous work on the alignment of frame-based multilingual lexical databases, we explore possibilities… read more | Chapter
Towards interlingual constructicography: On correspondence between constructicon resources for English and Swedish. Frames, constructions, and computation, Borin, Lars, Gerard de Melo, Karin Friberg Heppin and Tiago Timponi Torrent (eds.), pp. 9–332014.
This article addresses the possibility of linking constructicon resources for different languages, in particular English and Swedish. The entries in Berkeley’s English constructicon have been compared to Swedish, with a focus on potential correspondences in a Swedish constructicon. In most cases,… read more | Article
From construction candidates to constructicon entries: An experiment using semi-automatic methods for identifying constructions in corpora. Frames, constructions, and computation, Borin, Lars, Gerard de Melo, Karin Friberg Heppin and Tiago Timponi Torrent (eds.), pp. 114–1352014.
We present an experiment where natural language processing tools are used to automatically identify potential constructions in a corpus. The experiment was conducted as part of the ongoing efforts to develop a Swedish constructicon. Using an automatic method to suggest constructions has advantages… read more | Article
Re-thinking FNI: On null instantiation and control in Construction Grammar. Constructions and Frames 4:1, pp. 1–232012.
This paper discusses the classification of null instantiation phenomena in Construction Grammar and proposes a different treatment of so-called free null instantiation (FNI). Based on e.g. control data, different types of alleged FNI are shown to be more accurately classified as definite (adjunct… read more | Article
Control phenomena. Handbook of Pragmatics: 2009 Installment, Östman, Jan-Ola and Jef Verschueren (eds.), pp. 1–212009.
Control phenomena. Grammar, Meaning and Pragmatics, Brisard, Frank, Jan-Ola Östman and Jef Verschueren (eds.), pp. 33–492009.
Towards a comprehensive Construction Grammar account of control: A case study of Swedish infinitives. Constructions and Frames 1:2, pp. 153–1892009.
Based on an extensive corpus study, this paper presents an overview of control patterns in Swedish infinitives and sketches a CxG account of the data. To capture the variety of control relations encountered, the approach combines elements of traditional CxG, Frame Semantics, and Sign-Based… read more | Article
