Abstract and Keywords

This chapter focuses on Fluid Construction Grammar (FCG), a formalism that allows Construction Grammar researchers to formulate their findings in a precise manner and to test the implications of their theories for language parsing, production, and learning. It explains that FCG is not intended to displace other linguistic proposals for Construction Grammar but to be an open instrument which can be used by construction grammarians who want to formulate their intuitions and analyses in a precise way and who want to test the implications of their grammar designs for language parsing, production, and learning. The chapter furthermore shows that the construction-based approach is also relevant for the investigation of language processing, and discusses the methods and techniques adopted for the implementation of complex linguistic phenomena.

Keywords: FCG, Construction Grammar, language parsing, linguistic proposals, language processing, linguistic phenomena
