Abstract:
			
This book focuses on formulaic expressions called Situation-Bound
Utterances (SBU). These are highly conventionalized, prefabricated
pragmatic units whose occurrence is tied to standardized communicative
situations. The unique feature of the book is that it discusses SBUs
in a cognitive-pragmatic theoretical framework, focusing on four
opposing perspectives: monolingual versus multilingual approach;
formulaic and creative language use; literal and figurative language
(salient meaning); SBUs in L1 and L2.
