Vandeweerd, Nathan; Keijzer, Merel – Canadian Journal of Applied Linguistics / Revue canadienne de linguistique appliquée, 2018
Formulaic language is notoriously difficult for second language learners of French to master (Edmonds, 2014; Forsberg, 2010). Yet, no study has examined formulaic language in French textbooks despite the fact that in many contexts, textbooks represent a significant proportion of the input that learners receive. The current study addresses this…
