Abstract:

This book is the first of the two-volume collection of papers on formulaiclanguage. The collection is among the first ones in the field. The bookdraws attention to the ritualized, repetitive side of language, which tosome estimates make up over 50% of spoken and written text. While in thelinguistic literature, the creative and innovative aspects of language havebeen amply highlighted, conventionalized, pre-fabricated, 'off-the-shelf'expressions have been paid less attention - an imbalance that this bookattempts to remedy. The first of the two volumes addresses the very conceptof formulaic language and provides studies that explore the grammatical andsemantic properties of formulae, their stylistic distribution withinlanguages, and their evolution in the course of language history. Sincemost of the papers are readily accessible to readers with only basicfamiliarity with linguistics, besides being a resource in linguisticresearch, the book may be used in courses on discourse structure,pragmatics, semantics, language acquisition, and syntax, as well as being aresource 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 formulaiclanguage. The collection is among the first in the field. The authors ofthe papers in this volume represent a diverse group of internationalscholars in linguistics and psychology. The language data analyzed comefrom a variety of languages, including Arabic, Japanese, Polish, andSpanish, and include analyses of styles and genres within these languages.While the first volume focuses on the very definition of linguisticformulae and on their grammatical, semantic, stylistic, and historicalaspects, the second volume explores how formulae are acquired and lost byspeakers of a language, in what way they are psychologically real, and whattheir functions in discourse are. Since most of the papers are readilyaccessible to readers with only basic familiarity with linguistics, thebook may be used in courses on discourse structure, pragmatics, semantics,language acquisition, and syntax, as well as being a resource in linguisticresearch.
