Abstract

 

Taking usage–based construction grammar as its theoretical framework, this paper
addresses the interplay between construal operations and semantic conflict resolution in
anomalous instances of the relatively unexplored English [too ADJ to V]–construction.
Drawing on an open–ended questionnaire analysis in which native–speaker respondents
offer their readings of anomalous instances of the construction, the paper discusses strategies
of semantic construction–lexeme conflict resolution with a view to inferring construal
operations involved therein.

 

Key words
