To treat spoken and written formulaic language in the same fashion is erroneous. It masks the fact the meaning of spoken formulaic language is encoded to a large extent in its prosody. This book offers a new perspective on formulaic language: it argues that while past research often treats formulaic language as a lexical phenomenon, the phonological aspect of it is a more fundamental facet. The corpus-based descriptions of prosody outlined in this book not only deepen our understanding of the nature of formulaic language but have important implications for English Language Teaching and automatic speech synthesis.
