Types of Collocations

There are seven (7) main types of collocations. Be aware of these patterns and you will be able to readily notice collocations when used.

(1) Adjectives and Nouns: Notice which adjectives typically go with certain nouns.

Ex: best friend, chief complain, main issue

(2) Nouns and Verbs: Notice how certain nouns and verbs are found together.

Ex: The oil industry boomed in south Texas last year. (the industry was strong).

(3) Noun + Noun: Watch for collocations in this pattern – a....of.....

Ex: Luis accepted Roland’s advice with a grain of salt. (hardly accepted it at all!)

(4) Verbs and Expressions with Prepositions: Notice verbs and prepositions go together.

Ex: Myrna fell into despair when she failed her algebra test. (became sad)
