Distributional Semantics Meets Construction Grammar. towards a Unified Usage-Based Model of Grammar and Meaning


In this paper, we propose a new type of semantic representation of Construction Grammar that combines constructions with the vector representations used in Distributional Semantics. We introduce a new framework, Distributional Construction Grammar, where grammar and meaning are systematically modeled from language use, and finally, we discuss the kind of contributions that distributional models can provide to CxG representation from a linguistic and cognitive perspective.

In my research, I investigate the mechanisms underlying natural language comprehension, bringing together Construction Grammars, Distributional Semantics and psycholinguistic findings.
