TitleTowards a Dynamic Way of Learning Collocations in a Second Language
AbstractThe aim of this paper is to draw attention to the need for a new type of on-line second language learning environment in the field of collocations. Although nowadays it is increasingly acknowledged within the applied linguistics community that collocations need to be taught, the resources for teaching and learning them are still far from being sufficiently refined. We examine the main features of electronic collocational resources which currently exist for English, French and Spanish as a foreign language, showing that, in general, they have significant shortcomings. We are building a didactic module for Spanish associated with the collocation database currently under construction, Diccionario de colocaciones del espaƱol (DiCE). As in the fields of lexicography and translation, here we claim that computer assisted language learning also requires the creation of new tools with an integrated interface that allows access to dictionaries, the corpus and the didactic module.
