This Chapter is currently unavailable for purchase.

This chapter provides an overview of studies on multiword units of meaning that have made an impact on the creation of <i>SciE-Lex</i> (see Verdaguer et al. this volume). We discuss a variety of statistical, phraseological and rhetorical approaches to collocation, as well as the notion of <i>lexical bundle </i>(Biber et al. 1999). We also expound on the complementarity of these approaches and highlight the need for combining a range of research methods in the study of multiword units of meaning, especially if they are to be used in the development of practical instruments that can help non-native users of a language increase their phraseological competence.
