Abstract:
The main focus of this study was to investigate the relationship between recognition and understanding of formulaic sequences (FSs) and L2 reading comprehension. It also sought to find out whether the interaction between recognition and understanding of these sequences affects reading comprehension. In addition, six secondary hypotheses were examined. They investigated the relationships between recognition and understanding of formulaic sequences and the frequency of occurrence of the target sequences in the BNC and the subjects' overall English proficiency and their sex.
