9780805863451: Idioms: Description, Comprehension, Acquisition, and Pedagogy (ESL & Applied Linguistics Professional Series)

This comprehensive, up-to-date, and accessible text on idiom use, learning, and teaching approaches the topic with a balance of sound theory and extensive research in cognitive linguistics, psycholinguistics, corpus linguistics, and sociolinguistics combined with informed teaching practices. Idioms is organized into three parts:

  • Part I includes discussion of idiom definition, classification, usage patterns, and functions.
  • Part II investigates the process involved in the comprehension of idioms and the factors that influence individuals’ understanding and use of idioms in both L1 and L2.
  • Part III explores idiom acquisition and the teaching and learning of idioms, focusing especially on the strategies and techniques used to help students learn idioms.

To assist the reader in grasping the key issues, study questions are provided at the end of each chapter. The text also includes a glossary of special terms and an annotated list of selective idiom reference books and student textbooks.

Idioms is designed to serve either as a textbook for ESL/applied linguistics teacher education courses or as a reference book. No matter how the book is used, it will equip ESL/applied linguistics students and professionals with a solid understanding of various issues related to idioms and the learning of them.

Review:

"Overall, the book is an excellent reference for pre- and in-service language teachers, as well as those interested in the basics of idioms and language teaching. The accessible language, the quick summary and discussion questions that follow each chapter, the glossary, and the annotated list of selective idiom references make this book especially attractive for graduate courses in applied linguistics and related fields."--Teachers College Record 

"The book draws on a lot of research, is friendly to the reader, and will be of good value to teachers." --Paul Nation, Victoria University of Wellington, Australia
