Exploring Adjectives: With Special Focus on their Grammar, Meaning and Sound

Over the last few decades, the field of linguistics has witnessed a shift from the so-called the dictionary-and-grammar model (Taylor 2012: 8) to a view where knowledge of language is assumed to be knowledge of constructions and a construction is defined as a form-meaning pair (Goldberg 2003). The fundamental theoretical assumptions cherished in constructionist approaches – including the syntax-lexicon continuum hypothesis – have allowed researchers to explore a wide range of topics (e.g. idioms, argument structure constructions, constructional morphology, pragmatic properties of constructions, language change and variation). Despite the diversity in the topics dealt with by construction grammarians, the majority of research still has had a tendency to focus on verbs and related issues such as tense, aspect, modality, voice and/or sentence structures. In this workshop, we pay special attention to a relatively untouched (from the point of view of constructions) domain, namely adjectives. Using modern empirical methods (including corpus data) from the perspective of construction grammar/cognitive linguistics, we endeavor to provide a new insight into the study of adjectives.

Call for Papers:

We invite contributions that explore adjectives especially in terms of their grammar, meaning and sound. The following or related topics are particularly of interest.

What is the relationship between adjectives and constructions? How does conceptualization play a role in the use of adjectives? How do cultural models operate in our use of adjectives? How did adjectives develop diachronically? How do children or learners acquire/learn adjectives? What is the relationship between adjectives and sound? How should we approach adjectives cross-linguistically? What is the relationship between adjectives and other word classes? How can we capture the meaning of adjectives?

We call for papers that address the questions listed above or any other related topics. By focusing on issues in adjectives, particularly with respect to their meaning, grammar and sound, we seek to contribute to a better understanding of this relatively unexplored domain. Papers with empirical methods taking a cognitive, functional, typological, and discourse approach are particularly welcome.
