What is collocation?

Collocation is the natural combination of words when trying to convey a message. For example if you want to say “cortina de humo” in English you probably will translate as “smoke curtain” right? Well, that combination is wrong. The right combination or collocation would be ”smoke screen”. Collocation is a key ingredient in any language. If you know the right combination of words you can make your message get across more easily.

An example of this (from Michael Halliday) is the collocation strong tea. While the same meaning could be conveyed through the roughly equivalent powerful tea, the fact is that tea is thought of being strong rather than powerful. A similar observation holds for powerful computers, which is preferred over strong computers.

Collocations are examples of lexical units. Collocations should not be confused with idioms although both are similar.

Halliday’s work represents a competing viewpoint to the formalist approach of Noam Chomsky
