The last decade has seen a rise in popularity in construction-based approaches to grammar. The various approaches within the rubric "construction grammar" all see language as a network of constructions - pairings of form and meaning. Construction Grammar, as a kind of cognitive linguistics,differs significantly from mainstream generative grammar as espoused by Chomsky and his followers. Advocates of Construction Grammar see it as a psychologically plausible theory of human language. As such, it is capable of providing a principled account of language acquisition, language variationand language change. Research in Construction Grammar also includes multidisciplinary cognitive studies in psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, and computational linguistics.The Oxford Handbook of Construction Grammar is the first authoritative reference work solely dedicated to Construction Grammar. Divided into five sections, the book will be an invaluable resource that students and scholars alike can turn to for a comprehensive account of current work on ConstructionGrammar, its theoretical foundations, and its applications to and relationship with other kinds of linguistic enquiry.
