Articles

This article provides a principled constructionist account (Goldberg & Herbst, 2021) of the main characteristics of expressions like the following: (1) Juan es muy de (ir de) bares (‘Juan is very into (going to) bars’), and (2) Tu ayuda es muy de agradecer (‘Your help is very much appreciated’).… read more
Drawing on Cognitive Construction Grammar (Goldberg, 2006), this chapter furnishes a usage-based analysis of coercion involving the intensification of a prima facie non-gradable category, such as nouns. Our data analysis reveals that, in present-day Spanish, intensifiers (e.g. muy ‘very’, bastante… read more
Gonzálvez-García, Francisco 2020 Maximizing the explanatory power of constructions in Cognitive Construction Grammar(s)The Wealth and Breadth of Construction-Based Research, Colleman, Timothy, Frank Brisard, Astrid De Wit, Renata Enghels, Nikos Koutsoukos, Tanja Mortelmans and María Sol Sansiñena (eds.), pp. 110–121 | Article
This paper suggests two possible ways in which cognitively-oriented constructionist approaches (Cognitive Construction Grammar, Radical Construction Grammar, and Embodied Construction Grammar) could enhance the explanatory power of constructions. First, the anatomy of a construction should spell… read more

Building on Tabakowska’s (1993, 2003, 2005, 2009, 2013) full-blown defense of a cognitive linguistic approach to literary translation as well as on previous research dealing with the implementations of Construction Grammar(s) for translation studies (Szymańska 2011a, 2011b; Serbina 2015), this… read more
Gonzálvez-García, Francisco and Christopher S. Butler 2018 Situating Valency Theory in functional-cognitive spaceReview of Cognitive Linguistics 16:2, pp. 348–398 | Article
This article builds on the work reported in Butler and Gonzálvez-García (2014), in which 16 functional and/or cognitive/constructionist theories were compared on the basis of questionnaires completed by experts and a reading of the literature on each approach. The aim is to extend this work to… read more

Drawing on a cursory contrastive analysis of (i) the reflexive subjective-transitive construction, (ii) the self-descriptive subjective transitive construction, and (iii) the What’s X doing Y? (WXDY) construction in English and Spanish, this chapter explores the feasibility of capturing intra- and… read more

This paper provides a fine-grained analysis of the “X is so N(P)” constructionin present-day English, in which the noun in the A slot necessarily involvesmetonymic inferencing and can be determinerless, even if it is countable. Thisconstruction conveys a positive or negative assessment by the… read more
Gonzálvez-García, Francisco 2014 Chapter 6. Bringing together fragments and constructions: Evidence from complementation in English and SpanishRomance Perspectives on Construction Grammar, Boas, Hans C. and Francisco Gonzálvez-García (eds.), pp. 181–226 | Article
In this article, I argue that Thompson’s (2002) fragment analysis of (finite) complementation in English, while insightful, cannot be plausibly duplicated for all complementation strategies in English and Spanish. Specifically, this analysis cannot account for a number of semantico-pragmatic… read more
