Review from previous edition [T]he qualitative framework presented in this monograph is without any doubt a most admirable synthesis of current historical analysis within the framework of construction grammar, and will inspire nearly any linguist interested in language change. * Peter Petre, Diachronica *
Constructionalization and Constructional Changes represents a highly inspiring contribution to studies on language change in general and to the budding filed of diachronic construction grammar in particular, in which it will definitely become a standard reference work. * Judith Huber, Functions of Language *
