Sammanfattning

This chapter addresses the need for better coverage of semi-general linguistic patterns in (second) language pedagogy, which is currently biased towards general rules on the one hand and concrete expressions on the other. Arguably, this reflects the descriptive resources available: grammars and dictionaries.Hence, we propose that L2 education should benefit from a constructionist approach, which is less restricted to distinct linguistic levels and therefore better suited to handle, in particular, patterns combining lexical and grammatical properties. We review some of the leading Swedish L2 textbooks and study aid materials, and illustrate how they tend to neglect semi-general patterns and fail to capture the productivity and variability of constructions. For future L2 education to achieve better coverage in this regard, access to constructionist descriptive resources should be helpful. As an example of such a resource, we present the Swedish constructicon (SweCcn), an electronic database of Swedish construction descriptions, and discuss its usefulness for developing construction-based teaching materials, as a complement to the grammar and dictionary approach.
