Teaching and Learning Collocation in Adult Second and Foreign Language Learning
Boers, Frank; Webb, Stuart
Language Teaching, v51 n1 p77-89 Jan 2018
Perhaps the greatest challenge to creating a research timeline on teaching and learning collocation is deciding how wide to cast the net in the search for relevant publications. For one thing, the term "collocation" does not have the same meaning for all (applied) linguists and practitioners (Barfield & Gyllstad 2009) (see timeline). For another, items that are labelled as collocations in one study may be called something else in another study (Wray 2000: 465).
