CQPweb: Collocations

Watch Andrew Hardie elaborate on collocations and how to generate them using CQPweb.

This talk focuses on collocations, a concept you have met already, and in particular how to generate them and interpret them. As always, there will be copious illustration and hints about how you can take it further.

If you have any concerns, or, if you discover some interesting things, put them in the comments.

We strongly advise you to listen to Andrew Hardie’s video in one window of your computer, and open up his program, CQPweb, in another, so that you can practice what he is saying as he goes along. Obviously, you will need to pause periodically.
