Mr. Stockdale's Dictionary of Collocations.
Stockdale, Joseph Gagen, III
This dictionary of collocations was compiled by an English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) teacher in Saudi Arabia who teaches adult, native speakers of Arabic. The dictionary is practical in teaching English because it helps to focus on everyday events and situations. The dictionary works as follows: the teacher looks up a word, such as "talk"; next to the word is a list of words associated with that word, such as "peace, pep, pillow, shop, trash, heart-to-heart, man-to-man, and small"; the teacher explains the more interesting uses of the word. The teacher then asks for other possible uses and contexts for the word. The introduction makes many suggestions for the creative and productive use of this dictionary. (KFT)
