Abstract


Constructional approaches to language are flourishing in many branches of linguistics but have not yet been taken up in a serious way by the AI community, mainly due to the lack of mature computational formalisms and implementations to support this approach. However there is growing recent re- search beginning to fill this gap. This paper sketches the prop- erties we ideally would like to see from computational con- struction grammars and briefly describes how these properties have been implemented in one example system, namely Fluid Construction Grammar.
