Title: Phraseology
Subtitle: An interdisciplinary perspective
Edited By: Sylviane Granger
Fanny Meunier
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=Z%20139
Description:

Long regarded as a peripheral issue, phraseology is now taking centre stage
in a wide range of fields. This recent explosion of interest undoubtedly
has a great deal to do with the development of corpus linguistics research,
which has both demonstrated the key role of phraseological expressions in
language and provided researchers with automated methods of extraction and
analysis. The aim of this volume is to take stock of current research in
phraseology from a variety of perspectives: theoretical, descriptive,
contrastive, cultural, lexicographic and computational. It contains
overview chapters by leading experts in the field and a series of case
studies focusing on a wide range of multiword units: collocations, similes,
idioms, routine formulae and recurrent phrases. The volume is an invitation
for experienced phraseologists to look at the field with different eyes and
a useful introduction for the many researchers who are intrigued by
phraseology but need help in finding their way in this rich but complex
domain.
