Abstract:

This book is the first of the two-volume collection of papers on formulaic
language. The collection is among the first ones in the field. The book
draws attention to the ritualized, repetitive side of language, which to
some estimates make up over 50% of spoken and written text. While in the
linguistic literature, the creative and innovative aspects of language have
been amply highlighted, conventionalized, pre-fabricated, 'off-the-shelf'
expressions have been paid less attention - an imbalance that this book
attempts to remedy. The first of the two volumes addresses the very concept
of formulaic language and provides studies that explore the grammatical and
semantic properties of formulae, their stylistic distribution within
languages, and their evolution in the course of language history. Since
most of the papers are readily accessible to readers with only basic
familiarity with linguistics, besides being a resource in linguistic
research, the book may be used in courses on discourse structure,
pragmatics, semantics, language acquisition, and syntax, as well as being a
resource in linguistic research.

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics
                            Historical Linguistics
                            Semantics

Abstract:

This book is the second of the two-volume collection of papers on formulaic
language. The collection is among the first in the field. The authors of
the papers in this volume represent a diverse group of international
scholars in linguistics and psychology. The language data analyzed come
from a variety of languages, including Arabic, Japanese, Polish, and
Spanish, and include analyses of styles and genres within these languages.
While the first volume focuses on the very definition of linguistic
formulae and on their grammatical, semantic, stylistic, and historical
aspects, the second volume explores how formulae are acquired and lost by
speakers of a language, in what way they are psychologically real, and what
their functions in discourse are. Since most of the papers are readily
accessible to readers with only basic familiarity with linguistics, the
book may be used in courses on discourse structure, pragmatics, semantics,
language acquisition, and syntax, as well as being a resource in linguistic
research.

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis
