collocation, grammar, word choice
Is this sentence correct ?
The sound deafens people's ears
What is the difference between valid reasons and distinct reasons ?
What is the difference ?
He pays his student loan
He pays back his student loan
When I look up at collocation dictionary, several words ( sound, valid, distinct ) can be combined with reason
What do I have to do or what should I choose from several words ?
Re: collocation, grammar, word choice
A dictionary of collocations is a list of possible collocations. You can have 'a red car' and 'a green car' - both are possible collocations. You need a plain dictionary in order to find the difference between red and green.
