TitleSpecialized Lexical Combinations: Should they be described as Collocations or in Terms of Selectional Restrictions?
AbstractThis paper is an attempt to show that specialized lexical combinations (word groups used in special languages) – even though they share some similarities with collocations (word groups used in general language) – do not behave exactly like them. Thus, they should not be described using the apparatuses lexicographers usually resort to. We will demonstrate that, in most specialized lexical combinations, co-occurrents can combine with small or large groups of terminological units and that these terms can easily be grouped within larger semantic classes. This demonstration is based on a study conducted at the University of Montreal [Bertrand 1999].
