Coxhead developed and evaluated something called the "Academic Word List" for English Language Learners. This is a list of (supposedly) the most common "academic" terms to be used by students from non-English speaking countries to prepare them to study in countries like the States, Canada, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, England, New Zealand, and Australia.
Does anyone have an idea if there is an "Academic Idioms List?" I've search over 30 websites and only found, for example, the top 50 English Idioms or the top 100 English Idioms. But I'm looking for a list that focuses more on "academic" idioms like "shed light on," "take advantage of," and so forth.
I have the Cambridge and Oxford English Idioms Dictionaries, but again, these offer all kinds of idioms. I'm focused on finding "academic-based" ones.
