Tenth International Conference on Construction Grammar (ICCG10)

Source : Tenth International Conference on Construction Grammar – Sciencesconf.org


ICCG-10 provides a forum of discussion between various constructionist approaches such as cognitive construction grammar, embodied construction grammar, fluid construction grammar, radical construction grammar, sign based construction grammar, or other approaches.

It also aims to focus on the different methodologies used as well as the different applications of Construction Grammar. What are the methods currently in use (statistics, experiments, large corpora, small corpora, etc….). How is data collected ? How does the notion of Construction enlighten the research in language teaching, in language acquisition ? What are the possible industrial implementations?

The conference will be followed by two days of tutorials focusing on data and methodology.

Publication venue

We invite participants to publish their papers in article format in CogniTextes, the journal of the French Cognitive Linguistics Association (AFLiCo). Its main purpose is as a platform for academic exchange and its mission is to forge durable connections between researchers, near and far, working in the domains of cognitive linguistics, who wish to develop their domain in France or abroad. Via its peer review committee, CogniTextes offers previously unpublished articles (long and short), critical reviews and debates.

CogniTextes is indexed on ERIH PLUS and DOAJ.


Abstract for regular conference papers (20 mins talk plus 10 min. discussion) are invited on theoretical and applied topics in Construction Grammar approaches to language.
