Abstract

As we were preparing this special issue, Charles J. Chuck Fillmore (1929- 2014), the intellectual father of all framenets and all constructicons, a brilliant linguist and the most gentle and amiable of individuals, passed away at the much too young age of 84 after a long period of illness. Although physically already quite weakened by this illness at the time, he was able to participate in the 2013 International FrameNet Workshop, at which the first versions of the articles in this issue were presented, giving evidence that his amazing intellect was still completely intact. The extent to which he has shaped the linguistic investigation and description of lexical semantics-in the widest sense-over the last halfcentury, cannot be overestimated. He will be sorely missed by us all. We wish to dedicate this special issue of Constructions & Frames to his memory.
