    Re: Collocations

    Before anyone answers, could you say what you understand by "collocation"?

    Re: Collocations

    Hi Marya.S,


    collocation = an arrangement or juxtaposition of words or other elements, especially those that commonly co-occur, as rancid butter, bosom buddy, or dead serious.


    core: atomic core, clean core, Earth’s core, flow core, magnetic core etc.
    hard core = the most dedicated, unfailingly loyal faction of a group or organization: the hard core of the separatist movement.


    There is still a small hard core of football supporters who cause trouble whenever they can.


    layer: the bottom layer, outer layer, top layer, air layer, thin layer, thick layer etc.


    The hole in the ozone layer ….


    Regards.
