The Lexical Approach develops current thinking, synthesising the best insights of previous theory, corpus linguistics, discourse analysis, and modern approaches to business

Principles include:

  • the grammar, vocabulary dichotomy is invalid;
  • collocation is used as an organising principle;
  • successful language is a wider concept than accurate language;
  • the Observe-Hypothesise-Experiment cycle replaces the Present-Practice-Produce paradigm;
  • and, most importantly, language consists of grammatacalised lexis, not lexicalised grammar.
