This book addresses the key role of phraseology in second language
acquisition and instruction. It is divided into three main sections:
Extracting and Describing Phraseological Units investigates the role played
by native and learner corpora in the extraction and description of
multiword units, two initial and crucial steps in informing language
pedagogy; Learning Phraseological Units deals with the learning aspect, an
oft-neglected yet essential dimension of phraseology in second/foreign
language pedagogy, this section also addresses issues in new literacies;
and Recording and Exploiting Phraseological Units focuses on pedagogical
tools, notably monolingual and bilingual dictionaries and textbooks. This
stimulating collection presents cutting edge research in the field and
identifies major avenues for future theoretical and applied work. It is of
particular relevance to researchers and teachers interested in the
patterned nature of language.
