Corpus-Based versus Traditional Learning of Collocations
Daskalovska, Nina
Computer Assisted Language Learning, v28 n2 p130-144 2015
One of the aspects of knowing a word is the knowledge of which words it is usually used with. Since knowledge of collocations is essential for appropriate and fluent use of language, learning collocations should have a central place in the study of vocabulary. There are different opinions about the best ways of learning collocations. This study investigates the effectiveness of corpus-based activities for learning verb-adverb collocations compared to traditional activities usually found in course books. The test results show that the participants who learned the collocations with the help of the online concordancer gained more knowledge and had better results in all parts of the test.
