This volume provides a much-needed, critical overview of the field
of constructions and construction grammar in the context of
Singapore English, and poses the question of identifying a
construction in contact when the lexicon is derived from one
language and the syntax from another. Case studies are illustrated
in which the possibility of a 'merger'-construction is offered to
resolve such problems. The book is intended for students of
construction theories, variation studies, or any researcher of
de Gruyter Mouton
