Abstract

As collocation is one of the eight types of word knowledge that students need to learn and many experts agree that collocational knowledge enables learners to use the language fluently, language teachers need to devote more time to this aspect of word knowledge and to supplement the exercises in the textbooks with other activities that will help learners gain a better knowledge of collocations. Collocations can be learned effectively with the help of corpora because they can provide valuable information about collocations as well as examples of their use in authentic contexts.
