Abstract:

The only comprehensive survey of research on formulaic language and L2
speech and the teaching implications of the link between them.

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.

"Formulaic Language and Second Language Speech Fluency is a comprehensive
and highly readable exploration of formulaic language and its relationship
to fluency in second language speech production. The volume is organized
into three parts that provide readers with relevant background literature
on formulaic language in fluency, details of a study designed to explore
the role of formulaic language in fluency, and classroom strategies to
promote fluency through formulaic language. This timely volume on a
previously largely unexplored topic offers scope and depth that will appeal
to researchers and students in second language acquisition as well as areas
of Applied Linguistics; it should also be required reading for all second
language teachers"
