TitleThe freedom of word-combinations and the compilation of learners’ combinatory dictionaries
AbstractThe linguistic problem of freedom and productivity of word combination is closely connected wlth the lexicographical problem of compiling a Learners' Combinatory Dictionary meant to help students generate speech in its oral and written forms. Recent research in linguistics has convincingly shown that speech formation depends largely on word combinations: multiword units used as prefabricated blocks. The dictionary presents words in their natural combinations and settings. Free word combinations, which should be excluded from this type of dictionary turn out to be not so free.
