Constructicons and constructicography

image of Chapter 1. Introduction

A constructicon is on the one hand a theoretical conception of language as a structured inventory of constructions, and on the other hand a collection of construction descriptions, essentially a practical instantiation of the former concept. In this introductory chapter, we review the role of these notions in constructionist theory and practice, and relate it to the closely connected development of Frame Semantics into FrameNet. Practical constructicon development is characterized as a combination of construction grammar and lexicography, for which we introduce the term constructicography. Central issues in constructicography are introduced, setting the stage for the explorations in the following chapters.
