A new FCG web demo is available supporting a recent publication in the International Conference on the Computational Processing of Portuguese (PROPOR) by Tânia Marques and Katrien Beuls on ‘A Construction Grammar Approach for Pronominal Clitics in European Portuguese’. The demo can be found here. Comments are very welcome.
Fluid Construction Grammar can be downloaded as part of the Babel 2 software package. Babel 2 is a general cognitive framework that connects FCG with language technologies for conceptualization and interpretation, and with mechanisms for cognitive processing, learning, multi-agent interactions, and robotic embodiment.

As of 2015, a new notation for FCG has been introduced. The details and a few examples can be found in the article ‘Basics of Fluid Construction Grammar’ by Luc Steels, to appear in Constructions and Frames. You can download a draft of the article here. A web demonstration that supports the article is available too.
This week’s lecture teaches you how to use feature matrices for handling complex linguistic phenomena, ranging from case agreement to feature indeterminacy and feature neutrality. It also shows you how to use the Expand operator.
