TitleCollocations as one particular type of conventional word combinations Their definition and character
AbstractThe concept of "collocation" is still somewhat vague, despite attempts over the past few years to narrow it down. There are many kinds of recurrent combinations of words and the present article aims at a further demarcation of the concept within this larger field, partly involving a case study of the words commit and perpetrate. In addition some attention is paid to collocations across languages: a sample is presented of a Dutch-English collocating dictionary.
