Abstract

This special issue of Constructions on Swedish illustrates the versatility and wide applicability of constructionist approaches. In their introduction to the volume, Lyngelt and Wide first relate how construction grammar was introduced and established in Swedish linguistics. Then they provide a brief introduction to construction grammar as such. By way of Swedish examples, they illustrate some of the central ideas in construction grammar, such as multigrain generalizations and intermingling of linguistic levels. Finally, they present the contributions to the volume: Jan Anward deals with recycling in conversation; Sheila Dooley accounts for the comparative correlative ju ... desto construction; Björn Hammarberg treats comparative constructions from the viewpoint of acquisition; Jan Lindström and Anne-Marie Londen provide an interactional account of concessive constructions; Nina Martola addresses the relation between lexicon and grammar in the realization of passives; and Joel Olofsson discusses productivity in motion constructions.
