Aims and scope

This series aims to publish high quality books about conventionalized, idiosyncratic combinations of words. Within the field of phraseology such word combinations are sometimes called phrasemes, while the computational linguistics community uses the term multiword expressions for them. Various subtypes of such word combinations are of interest, such as multiword compounds, multiword terms, multiword named entities, light verb constructions, phrasal verbs, idioms, collocations, formulaic speech, proverbs, etc. The series is open to different approaches so as to create a forum for an interdisciplinary and cross-framework exchange of research results, including but not limited to the following subdisciplines:

  • Computational linguistics and natural language processing
  • Computer science
  • Corpus linguistics
  • Lexicography
  • Psycholinguistics
  • Theoretical linguistics

We publish books addressing all topics related to theoretical, computational, and empirical approaches to phraseology including:

  • Linguistic properties and typologies of multiword expressions, especially in multilingual frameworks
  • Electronic lexical resources including multiword expressions
  • Formal grammatical description of multiword expressions
  • Parsing technologies including multiword expressions
  • Identification and annotation of multiword expressions in corpora and treebanks
  • Multiword expressions in machine translation and other multilingual applications


We invite volume proposals of approximately 1–2 A4 pages containing:

  • the planned title,
  • overall content and aims of the book,
  • structure (i.e. chapter titles, or titles of papers and authors’ names if any),
  • details of how you plan to ensure a satisfactory level of reviewing (see the general proofreading procedure guidelines http://userblogs.fu-berlin.de/langsci-press/2016/02/08/reviewing-of-edited-volumes from Language Science Press, and indicate which process you would prefer).

Your proposal will first be discussed by the 5 editors of the series and then reviewed by at least two other referees.


All contributions are welcome in English.


The ISSN for Phraseology and Multiword Expressions is 2625-3127
