Introduction

 

Treatment of English collocations has only recently begun to find its way in pedagogical materials targeted at the learner of English as a Foreign Language (EFL). This essay will first, draw an outline of the concept of collocation and examine relevant aspects of the way collocational studies are conducted; second, it will look into the (actual and potential) contribution of the findings of collocational studies to EFL instruction and support materials, as well as examine the pedagogical treatment of the collocational properties of lexical items in them 

 

Key words

 

Collocation, corpora, pedagogical materials, language description, English language teaching, language teaching methodology, EFL, ESL, ESOL, ELT, TESOL.
