Abstract [en]

Text-oriented formulaic expressions (e.g., in addition to, on the other hand, nevertheless) are important in crafting reader-friendly prose and particularly frequent in academic discourse. By accommodating both multi-word expressions (MWEs) and single-word expressions (SWE5), the present study is among the first attempts to explore how the two types of expressions relate and contribute to the level of formulaicity in academic discourse. Through a manual examination of formulaic expressions in context, the present study provides important insights into the nature of formulaicity in the organisation of written academic discourse produced by mature and developing writers, with pedagogical implications for the training of novice writers in scientific fields.
