Formulaic sequences (FS) at the moment are famous as a vital component to language use. although, study on FS has ordinarily been constrained to a spotlight on description, or at the position of FS in L1 acquisition. This quantity opens new instructions in FS study, focusing on how FS are received and processed by way of the brain, either within the L1 and L2. the 10 unique stories within the quantity illustrate the L2 acquisition of FS, the connection among L1 and L2 FS, the connection among corpus recurrence of FS and their psycholinguistic fact, the strategies enthusiastic about interpreting FS, and pedagogical concerns in instructing FS.

Example text

In addition to the limitations of corpus analysis we have already noted, Wray (2002: 28–30) discusses two others. One is the big discrepancy in the estimates by different researchers of the proportion of the corpus they analysed which could be considered to consist of formulaic sequences. Leaving aside any problems with the reliability of the individual analyses, there are clearly validity issues here related to differing theoretical and operational definitions of formulaicity. Secondly, Moon (1998) among others has found that numerous formulaic expressions that are very familiar to native speakers do not occur at all even in the mega-corpora.

Wray’s (Chapter 12) fascinating study of a beginner’s memorisation of sequences in Welsh uses evidence from pausing, errors, and changes to items in strings to examine the effect of the memorisation of sequences and analysis on the retention of immediately useable language items. This use of both quantitative and qualitative evidence provides interesting insights into the way language data is stored and changed. 33 34 John Read and Paul Nation In two innovative studies, Underwood, Schmitt and Galpin (Chapter 8), and Schmitt and Underwood (Chapter 9) used eye movement and self-paced reading methodologies to see if formulaic phrases embedded in a text were read any differently from other non-formulaic parts of the text.
