    Collocations are words that typically appear together. There are many. Let's start of with a site that explains this in more detail.

    Collocation. Collocation is the way in which some words are often used together. A collocation is a particular combination of words used in this way: "Commit a crime" is a typical collocation in English. (Longman Advanced American Dictionary)

    Take a look at this link. If any examples come to mind, I'll post them here. There are many possible examples.

    You can find collocations in Cambridge Dictionaries Online as well.
