Abstract

J R Firth first gave prominence to collacation in linguistic theory. Halliday, Sinclair, Stubbs, and Hoey have all extended Firth's ideas. Palmer and Hornby recognized the pedagogical value of collocation, and incorporated it into their early EFL dictionaries. More recent EFL dictionaries, based on large, computerized language corpora, have used complex software and statistical measures to gain further insights into the way that collocational patterns are woven into language, and the results are visible in the dictionary entries of later editions. This has fed back into language pedagogy, and is also influencing translation and computational research. © 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
