  Constructions and Frames

A new journal devoted to constructional and frame-semantic research. Published by John Benjamins. Click here for details.

Mirjam Fried (Charles University, Prague) and Kiki Nikiforidou (University of Athens)


The aim of this international, peer-reviewed journal is to promote innovative research that extends constructional approaches in new directions and along interdisciplinary paths. Articles published in Construction and Frames range from descriptions of grammatical phenomena in different languages to constructionally oriented work in cognitive linguistics, grammaticalization theory, typology, conversation analysis and international linguistics, poetics, and sociolinguistics. Submissions that explore applications to or implications for related fields, such as communication studies, computational linguistics, lexicography, psychology, and anthropology are also invited.



An electronic journal publishing constructional research.

Editors:     Alexander Bergs and Thomas Hoffmann (Universität Osnabrück)

The journal aims at a balanced integration of both notional, informal approaches to constructions in general and more formal treatments, as, for example, within some strands of Construction Grammar. One of the long-term goals is to establish contact between researchers from various perspectives. The term ‘construction’ as understood in this journal is deliberately chosen to have a broad extension and not be limited to any specific definition or linguistic orientation. Constructions is not restricted to any particular language or language family, and aims at combining theoretical, empirical, and applied issues.    


Construction Grammar Bibliography

(Note: The items on this list are, for the most part, works that individual authors suggested as relevant to a constructional approach to language in general. Some of the papers/books are concerned primarily with theoretical and representational issues, others concentrate more on descriptive problems that appear to be good candidates for constructional analysis.
