English: In this research; we use machine learning techniques to provide solutions for descriptive linguists in the domain of language standardization. With regard to the personal name construction in Afrikaans; we perform function learning from word pairs using the Default&Refine algorithm. We demonstrate how the extracted rules can be used to identify irregularities in previously standardized constructions and to predict new forms of unseen words. In addition; we define a generic; automated process that allows us to extract constructional schemas and present these visually as categorization networks; similar to what is often being used in Cognitive Grammar. We conclude that computational modeling of constructions can contribute to new descriptive linguistic insights; and to practical language solutions.
