"The most complete discussion of the different facets of formulaic language to date. With so much research on formulaic language having been conducted in recent years, Understanding Formulaic Language provides a much-needed account of cognitive and psycholinguistic, socio-cultural and pragmatic, and pedagogical perspectives on formulaic language. In-depth discussion of the topic by an impressive group of contributors will make the volume a valuable resource for graduate students and researchers."

Stuart Webb, Professor of Applied Linguistics, University of Western Ontario, Canada

"This landmark volume gathers state-of-the-art reviews of research into formulaic language. The chapters are written by leading researchers in the fields of second-language acquisition, processing, transfer, pragmatics, corpus linguistics, humor, prosody, language instruction, instructional technologies, language testing, and EAP. Each contribution addresses key theoretical, methodological, and empirical issues. A must-read for anyone interested in the acquisition, processing, and use of formulaic sequences."

Nick Ellis, Professor of Linguistics, University of Michigan, USA

"Understanding Formulaic Language is a timely book, bringing together some of the best formulaic language scholars to draw together disparate strands within the field into a unified and comprehensive whole. Its particular strength is its succinct presentation of the past, the present, and the future of the field. It is likely to become a standard reference in the area."

Brent Wolter, Professor of English, Idaho State University, USA
