Bringing computational construction grammar into your classes and research

Paul Van Eecke and Katrien Beuls are organising a tutorial at the 11th International Conference on Construction Grammar in Antwerp on 19 August 2020. During the tutorial, we will walk you through the basics of computational construction grammar (CCxG), with a special focus on how the main ideas underlying construction grammar can be implemented using FCG. The tutorial will alternate between theory, hands-on exercises from the textbook and demonstrations of more advanced case studies. It targets in particular lecturers in construction grammar who wish to include CCxG into their courses, as well as scholars who would like to learn CCxG and use it in their research. For more information, please check the tutorial’s webpage.
