Ukrainian Constructicon

Principal investigator: Yuliia Palii

Project title: The Ukrainian Constructicon

Summary of the project:

The aim of this project is to create the Ukrainian Constructicon (UkrCon), a free open access digital educational resource that offers a collection of Ukrainian multi-word grammatical constructions, i.e. prominent linguistic patterns of phrase and sentence structures that are characteristic of the Ukrainian language. UkrCon aims to contribute to the emergent interdisciplinary field of Constructicography that lies at the crossroads of theoretical linguistics, usage-based methods, and language technology (Lyngfelt et al. 2018).

This project takes the initiative of making the linguistic data on Ukrainian constructions more accessible and visible to the scholarly linguistic community, as well as to learners of Ukrainian as a second language and to the general public. Moreover, the outcome product can serve to develop automatic translation software and educational materials.
