Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines constructional approaches to language variation and aspects of discourse, including idiolectal and community variation. It provides three case studies to illustrate the modeling of inherent variability in cognitive linguistics in general and in Construction Grammar in particular. The chapter shows how the usage-based nature of much research in Construction Grammar may be applied to emergent variation in discourse structures, particularly in dialogic contexts.

Keywords: inherent variability, modeling variation, community variation, cognitive linguistics, Construction Grammar, discourse structures, dialogic context
