    sports

    Hello,

    What is the most common collocation with the word "sport"?

    - to go in for sport(s)
    - to do sport(s)
    - to play sport(s)
    - ?

    By the way, when do you say "sport" and when "sports"? ;)

    Thank you

    Re: sports

    To play a sport; to go in for sport(s).

    "Sport" is often used to express sports in general. "To do sport" is not fully accepted (some people like it, others don't).
