Constructional meaning representation within a knowledge engineering framework. Review of Cognitive Linguistics 13:1, pp. 1–272015.
FunGramKB is a multipurpose lexico-conceptual knowledge base for natural language processing systems, and more particularly, for natural language understanding. The linguistic layer of this knowledge-engineering project is grounded in compatible aspects of two linguistic accounts, namely, Role and… read more | Article
Interfacing the lexicon and an ontology in a linking system. Theory and Practice in Functional-Cognitive Space, Gómez González, María de los Ángeles, Francisco José Ruiz de Mendoza Ibáñez and Francisco Gonzálvez-García (eds.), pp. 205–2282014.
The aim of this paper is to discuss the repercussions of a conceptual orientation on two crucial parts of the Role and Reference Grammar (RRG) linking algorithm, that is, semantic representation and constructional schemas. Firstly, it is argued that adopting FunGramKB’s notion of conceptual logical… read more | Article
Levels of description and explanation in meaning construction. Deconstructing Constructions, Butler, Christopher S. and Javier Martín Arista (eds.), pp. 153–1982009.
This article proposes the Lexical Constructional Model (LCM) as an explanatorily adequate model for the investigation of meaning construction at all levels of linguistic description, including pragmatics and discourse. The LCM has an argument structure module or level 1 module consisting of… read more | Article
Lexical templates within a functional cognitive theory of meaning. Annual Review of Cognitive Linguistics: Volume 5, Ruiz de Mendoza Ibáñez, Francisco José (ed.), pp. 137–1722007.
Within the context of the Lexical Constructional Model, which provides a comprehensive account of the relationship between syntax and all facets on meaning construction, this paper is concerned with one of the major representational modules of the model, viz. a lexical template. It is claimed that… read more | Article
High-level metaphor and metonymy in meaning construction. Aspects of Meaning Construction, Radden, Günter, Klaus-Michael Köpcke, Thomas Berg and Peter Siemund (eds.), pp. 33–492007.
This chapter addresses the problem of meaning construction in grammar from the point of view of high-level metaphor and metonymy. We argue that meaning construction, in the sense given to this term by Panther (2005), is essentially an inferential activity whether at the level of so-called pragmatic… read more | Article
Methodological criteria for the elaboration of a functional lexicon-based grammar of the semantic domain of cognitive verbs. The Structure of the Lexicon in Functional Grammar, Olbertz, Hella, Kees Hengeveld and Jesús Sánchez García (eds.), pp. 3 ff.1998.
