Examines how formulaic language ("lexical chunks") is used in a variety of real-life situations. Presents a framework for examining the existence and function of formulaic language and tests it extensively against language data within a wide variety of language samples. Formulaic language is a fast-growing area of applied linguistic research, and the author is a key figure in this field.
