Long regarded as a peripheral issue, phraseology is now taking centre stage in a wide range of fields. This recent explosion of interest undoubtedly has a great deal to do with the development of corpus linguistics research, which has both demonstrated the key role of phraseological expressions in language and provided researchers with automated methods of extraction and analysis. The aim of this volume is to take stock of current research in phraseology from a variety of perspectives: theoretical, descriptive, contrastive, cultural, lexicographic and computational. It contains overview chapters by leading experts in the field and a series of case studies focusing on a wide range of multiword units: collocations, similes, idioms, routine formulae and recurrent phrases. The volume is an invitation for experienced phraseologists to look at the field with different eyes and a useful introduction for the many researchers who are intrigued by phraseology but need help in finding their way in this rich but complex domain.

Table of Contents
Phraseology – An interdisciplinary perspective is a finely-edited volume, which will provide its readers with a lot of food for thought if they wish to know more about an area of language description which was long neglected and is now undergoing a vivid and welcome revival.”
“The editors state that the aim of this volume is to reflect the interdisciplinary dimension of the phraseological studies. One cannot but agree that this aim has been thoroughly accomplished as the volume covers such a wide range of perspectives, beginning with theoretical aspect, reflecting on corpus-based analysis of phraseological units and phraseology across different languages and cultures, ending, not surprisingly, with computational linguistics. This volume might be considered a phraseological manifesto of a kind, since most of the articles clearly advocate the strong necessity for studying phrases, multi-word units, phraseological units, or whatever term we choose. The diverse terminology also testifies to the maturing and early stage of this branch of linguistics. We might conclude that this book mirrors a view that with the general increase in research in phraseology and the fast development of computational linguistics, it is a rather promising linguistic discipline whose time, to put it in a phrase, has yet to come.”
“A convincing case is made in this book for more information on both the internal (co-textual) and external (contextual) situations in which words occur in various combinations as well as for more criteria that are required in their identification, interpretation, classification and codification.”
