Extending our Understanding of Phraseology

This paper is premised on Sinclair's (1987:320) ‘idiom principle’which states that speakers and writers co-select the words they speak and write in order to produce units of meaning.The centrality of phraseology in language use was established in the 1960s (Sinclair,et al.,1970),but it is only relatively recently that there has been an increasing number of studies that have attempted to explore the extent of phraseology in the English language,or to analyse the inner workings of the phraseological tendency.
