We are looking forward to seeing you in Paris and wish you a very pleasant trip!

The ICCG-10 organizing committee.

Welcome to ICCG 10!

ICCG-10 aims to provide a forum of discussion between various constructionist approaches such as cognitive construction grammar, embodied construction grammar, fluid construction grammar, radical construction grammar, sign based construction grammar, or other approaches.

It also aims to focus on the different methodologies used as well as the different applications of Construction Grammar. What are the methods currently in use (statistics, experiments, large corpora, small corpora, etc….). How is data collected ? How does the notion of Construction enlighten the research in language teaching, in language acquisition ? What are the possible industrial implementations?

The conference will be followed by two days of tutorials (July 19th-20th) focusing on data and methodology.
