Abstract


Bearing the word “fluid” in its name, Fluid Construction Grammar (FCG) is known for its open-ended nature when it comes to formalising linguistic knowledge in the form of constructions. Yet, it is also flexible with respect to the processing of input that cannot be handled in the standard way. This paper presents a meta-layer architecture that is fully integrated into the FCG language processing framework, as well as a number of powerful and general operators that can be used within this architecture for on-the-fly problem solving and learning of lexical and grammatical constructions.
