Melnik & Sailer edit special issue on “Constructional approaches in formal grammar”

In order to promote a discussion between formal and constructional approaches to grammar, Nurit Melnik & Manfred Sailer edited a special issue of the Journal of Language Modelling devoted to “Constructional approaches in formal grammar”.

The issue consists of a brief introduction and three papers – by Jamie Findlay, Frank van Eynde, and Nurit Melnik. In the introduction, Nurit & Manfred identify three key ways of understanding “constructional” and they show how each of the contributions in the issue relates to these.
