    collocate with/together?

    Do we say: "these words don't collocate with each other" or "these words don't collocate together"?

    Or maybe it's better to avoid both by saying: "The word xxx does not collocate with the word yyy"?

    I know it's not a particularly important linguistic issue, I just want to know what collocate collocates with...

    I would say:
    Those words don't collocate with each other.
    Those words don't go together.
