Interview with Martin Hilpert

Marcos Luiz Wiedemer, Marcia dos Santos Machado Vieira, Maria Maura da Conceição Cezario


We have gathered here questions that are of great interest to Brazilian researches developed in the field of Functional-Cognitive Linguistics and Construction Grammar centered on the experience of use and/or perception-processing/subjective evaluation. In this set of questions, Professor Martin Hilpert has the opportunity to reflect on some of our concerns, in order to contribute to the debate in Brazil on the constructional representation of stabilization, variation (by polysemy and similarity) and linguistic change phenomena.
