The Second International Conference on Construction Grammar will take
place at the University of Helsinki, Finland, September 6-8, 2002.

The conference is a follow-up on the First International Conference on
Construction Grammar held in Berkeley in April 2001. In line with the
aim of the first conference, we hope that ICCG2 will continue to serve
as a forum for promoting discussion and collaboration among linguists
interested in Construction Grammar and Frame Semantics, as well as in
related constructional research in its various models and applications.

Plenary speakers include:
Hans Boas
William Croft
Charles J. Fillmore
Mirjam Fried
Adele E. Goldberg

Michael Tomasello

Regular conference papers (20-min. talk plus 10-min. discussion) are
invited on any aspect of linguistic analysis that is concerned with
constructions and/or frames.  We
welcome work on issues in syntax, morphology, semantics, pragmatics,
discourse, language acquisition, corpus linguistics, language
variation/change, etc.
