Academic Paper


Title: Editor's Introduction
Author: Charlene Polio
Institution: Michigan State University
Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics
Abstract: Given the proliferation of recent research on formulaic language, including several books, it seemed time to devote an issue of the Annual Review of Applied Linguistics to the topic. Empirical research focusing on chunks of language shows no signs of waning, and the topic has even made its way into the popular press, thanks to Ben Zimmer's column in the New York Times two years ago.
