TitleOn the Status of Word Combinations in the English Monolingual Learner’s Dictionaries: Entry or Collocation?
AbstractThis paper discusses the boundaries between collocations and dictionary entries proper. It compares the way the Oxford Collocations Dictionary for Students of English (OCDSE) (2002) deals with collocations as compared with the monolingual English learner's dictionaries. The conclusion is that for the latter many OCDSE collocations are real entries with headword status. The paper concludes with some tentative conclusions about the most practical procedure to be adopted.
