Title: Researching Collocations in Another Language
Subtitle: Multiple Interpretations
Edited By: Andy Barfield
Henrik Carl Gyllstad
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=291907
Description:

"Researching Collocations in Another Language" helps us understand more
deeply why collocation knowledge and performance are one of the most
fascinating (and at times frustrating) challenges that second language
users face. This volume brings together 12 studies from Asia, Europe and
North America, divided into four sets: (i) using learner corpora to
identify patterns of L2 collocation use, (ii) developing appropriate L2
collocation dictionary and classroom materials, (iii) investigating how
learners' L2 collocation knowledge can be assessed, and (iv) exploring how
learners develop their L2 collocation knowledge and use.

Each set of studies includes three research chapters and a critical
commentary written by experts in the respective field. The book also
features an introduction to second language collocation research, and a
thought-provoking conclusion chapter on wider issues and challenges. The
volume thus offers teachers, researchers, and graduate students a highly
valuable and critical focus on second language collocation knowledge and
performance.
