Will You Favour Me? The Importance of Formulaic Language

J. A. Jordan

Kwansei Gakuin University, Japan

Formulaic language (FL) is defined here as a group of words that operates as a single lexical item. Research indicates that FL plays a significant role in successful and natural sounding communication. It reduces the amount of mental effort required for both interlocutors to process the language. Finally, it comprises a large part of academic writing and identifies people as members of a group. An understanding of these roles of FL in an L2 can benefit both teachers and learners. This presentation will synthesize current FL research and contextualize it with practical classroom applications.
