UFJF - Universidade Federal de Juiz de Fora

The 9th International Conference on Construction Grammar (ICCG9) will be held by the Federal University of Juiz de Fora, at the Independência Trade Hotel, in Juiz de Fora, Brazil, from 5-7 October 2016. The history of the ICCG dates back to 2001, when the first conference was organized in Berkeley, California, by Hans Boas and Mirjam Fried. Since then, ICCG has become one of the most important fora for the discussion of research in Construction Grammar, with conferences being held every two years at major universities in North America, Europe and Asia. ICCG9 will cover a broad range of topics related to the research on Construction Grammar and Frame Semantics, including constructional and/or frame-based approaches to morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, typology, language variation and change, computational modeling, corpus linguistics, language acquisition and learning etc.
