Student or Learner
Which alternatives do you prefer?
1. She's an international celebrity/personality/celeb. (ME: all of them)
2. I donít like the way papers intrude/pry/conduct into people's private lives. (intrude, pry)
3. Have you read the coverage/tabloids/findings today? (ME: coverage, tabloids)
Have you tried using a concordancer to see what is more common? Tom Cobb's Lextutor is great: http://lextutor.ca (or COCA). Just click on concordance, type in each collocation (international celebrity, international personality etc), select the corpus to look through and see what seems more frequent.
Hope this helps,
