The Yearbook of Phraseology is a fully international, peer-reviewed publication dedicated to research in phraseology, a linguistic subfield concerned with the study of word combinations of varying extent and type, and different degrees of fixedness. Word combinations are ubiquitous in language and constitute a significant resource for communication. Their study is of interest to many other subdisciplines of linguistics and even to other disciplines, throwing light on the make-up of constructions, their processing and learning, the make-up and modes of creation of complex building blocks of language, the methodology and use of corpora and statistical methods, as well as on the way in which language functions.
The Yearbook of Phraseology is sponsored by the European Society of Phraseology (Europhras).

Format and style guidelines

To enable anonymous refereeing to take place, the front page of the manuscript should carry only the title of the paper, name/s and affiliation/s of author/s, the word count for the main text of the paper, and full contact addresses for correspondence – postal, email, fax and telephone.
Please do not cite your own work in a way that could identify you.
Correspondence will be sent to the first-named author unless otherwise indicated.
A one-paragraph abstract (upper limit 150 words) must accompany the initial submission if the article is in English. It should be followed by a maximum of five keywords. If the submission is in a language other than English, an extended abstract (approximately 0.5 pages) in English is required. This should be written in an impersonal style, using constructions such as it has been demonstrated, it has yet to be shown.
Please check thoroughly the accuracy, completeness and order of references before submission. It saves the editors a great deal of time if contributors check that their list of references adheres exactly to the style sheet.
