Video lecture on argument structure online!

This lecture handles one of the most salient aspects of construction grammar: argument structure constructions. In construction grammar, argument realization is explained through the free interaction of lexical and grammatical constructions where the same lexical construction may be combined with different argument structure constructions. The lecture will teach you how this free combination is possible, and how coercion can be achieved.

Video lecture on morphology online

Part 2 of our video tutorial on Fluid Construction Grammar kicks off today with a lecture on how to handle morphology. You can check the first part of the lecture at this link. Today’s lecture focuses on a holistic approach to morphology where you take a lexical construction and combine it with several possible surface form realizations. Next week, we’ll tackle part two of this lecture: how to take a compositional approach to morphology.
