TitleOn the presentation of collocations in monolingual dictionaries
AbstractThe presentation of collocations in the microstructure of dictionary articles has received comparatively little metalexicographic attention. Prompted by the recent publication of two new collocation dictionaries, the Oxford Collocations Dictionary/ or Students of English (OCDSE) and the Dictionnaire Combinatoire du Français (DCF), we analyse presentational devices for collocations in general and specialized monolingual dictionaries and make proposals towards efficient presentation. We do so by first listing the main types of linguistic facts on collocations that require presentation in dictionaries, and by then discussing the place of collocations in the microstructure, the syntagmatic form of collocation indications, as well as their order and grouping.
