In this collection a cast of distinguished contributors responds to and elaborates Charles Fillmore's and Paul Kay's "Construction Grammar." In contrast to the modular Chomskyan approach which treats grammatical constructions as epiphenomena, Construction Grammar works on the premise that constructions function as units of grammar in a way similar to words, and that their properties derive from complex interplays between lexicon, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics.
