    Default collocations

    Can you explain me about the collocation when we talk about the vocabulary's acquisition. Can you help me with some examples? :D

    Collocations are words that tend to be used together, as result in, result for and result of.

    Some word combinations occur frequently. Others occur rarely or not at all. Those word combinations that occur frequently are called collocations.
