Abstract: This extensive article examines trends in second language communication strategies (CSs) to date. It aims to present a historical overview of CS research, definitions of CSs offered and the various taxonomies proposed in the literature so far. Data elicitation methods and data analysis procedures are also discussed. Then it presents the author's taxonomy of communication strategy, which is based on the pilot study he conducted. Furthermore, it highlights the major problems of existing taxonomies and their classification of CSs into different categories. Teachability of communication strategies, which is a controversial issue, is also discussed. Finally, it concludes with the implications of communication strategies.
