Authors: PetrĂ©, Peter

Publisher: Eastern Michigan University
Series Title: LINGUIST
Abstract: The main goal of Goldberg's new book 'Constructions at work' is the establishment of a psychologically and cross-linguistically realistic model of our knowledge of language within the framework of construction grammar (CxG; see Goldberg 1995, Croft 2001). The main claim is that our language system consists of a series of generalizations, which are CONSTRUCTED on the basis of input similarities and general cognitive mechanisms.
