Hi teachers,

I want to ask you about collocations.
how I can find it ?
For example : what's the collocation of core or layer?

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

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.


V.
