Abstract

This study
The purpose of this study is to characterize how the noun "fact", typical of academic writing contexts (Barry, 2011; McCarthy & O‘Dell, 2008), is employed in formulaic sequences (FSs) involving clusters like the fact that, a well-known fact and the fact is that, and compare these expressions to instances found in the Corpus of Contemporary American English or COCA hereafter (Davies, 2008). This study will analyse the uses of these FSs in COCA's academic subcorpus, which will constitute the "expert" corpus of reference (EC).
