This book focuses on formulaic expressions called Situation-Bound Utterances (SBU). These are highly conventionalized, prefabricated pragmatic units whose occurrence is tied to standardized communicative situations. The unique feature of the book is that it discusses SBUs in a cognitive-pragmatic theoretical framework, focusing on four opposing perspectives: monolingual versus multilingual approach; formulaic and creative language use; literal and figurative language (salient meaning); SBUs in L1 and L2.
