    healthy body

    1.A Chinese magazine holds healthy body is wrong.But I looked up a dictionary by Japanese finding the phrase.
    2.Although I spoke to him many times, he never took any ----of what I said.
    A . notice, B. consideration
    A Chinese magazine chooses A.But the above dictionary has the phrase "takec consideration of".
    What do you think of 1 and 2?

    Yes, it's wrong, as the others have implied.

    As a previous response said, we "take something into consideration" or we "give consideration to something", but we don't simply "take consideration".

    Please take my opinions into consideration when you make your decision.
    Please give consideration to other people's responses.

    Please take notice of my comments.

    "take consideration of this fact (=this fac into consideration) in pulishing the criminal" which I quoted from
    Kenkyusha's New Dictionary of English Collocations P.253.

    It's not at all surprising that some entries in a Japanese dictionary of English collocations will not ring true to many native speakers.

    Even so, the nature of the test means you have to choose the best answer, and probably even Kenkyusha would tell you that "never took any notice" is a far more common collocation and a superior choice to "never took any consideration".

    You have put forward a serious question which refers to how judging a dictionary.As a student who is not English,he only can believe a dictionary,of course ,not any.Afterwards how to deal with such similar problems is very difficult to us.Can you give us a general guide!Thank you very much!
