Formulaic Language and Second Language Speech Fluency: Background, Evidence and Classroom Applications

    By

    This volume presents a comprehensive look at the phenomenon of formulaic language multi-word units believed to be mentally stored and retrieved as single units and its role;in fluent speech production. Focusing on second language speech, the book provides an overview of research into the role of formulaic language in fluency, details a study which provides evidence of that role, and outlines teaching plans and strategies to foster it. This important area has not been examined in such depth and scope before, and this work has many implications for future research and language pedagogy. It will appeal to researchers in discourse analysis and second language acquisition.
