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.
