The paper reports on progress in building com- putational models of a constructivist approach to language development. It introduces a formalism for construction grammars and learning strategies based on invention, abduction, and induction. Ex- amples are drawn from experiments exercising the model in situated language games played by embod- ied arti cial agents.
