Editorial Reviews

'A thought provoking book that I would recommend to all those interested in collocation or formulaic language in general.' JALT Journal'This volume is, overall an excellent resource for researchers and classroom practitioners on the use and development of L2 collocation.' Fei Fei, Michigan State University, Studies in Second Language Acquisition'An extremely valubuable collection of state-of-the-art articles in collocation research [offering] an excellent foundation for anyone considering further research in the area. No previous books have focused exlusively on L2 collocation knowledge and the book fills a gap that many researchers, including myself, have been waiting for... Overall, this book is an outstanding resource.' Sara Smith, University of Oxford, System'The book is a comprehensible review of recent research in collocations. Its main asset is addressing the challenge of approaching collocations from numerous perspectives and stressing how complex L2 collocation development is.' Pawel Szudarski, University of Nottingham, The Language Learning Journal
