Title The role of corpus and collocation tools in practical lexicography
Abstract This paper looks at the corpus tools developed at Cambridge University Press, particularly those concerned with identifying and analysing collocations. It discusses the pros and cons of different tools, looking particularly at how each may best be used in a commercial environment where lexicographers must meet challenging deadlines whilst producing thorough, authoritative, and accessible text, and argues that while such tools provide invaluable empirical evidence, native speaker intuition still has an important role to play when time for research is limited.
