An exploration of second language collocation knowledge and development. / Andrew William Barfield

Swansea University Author: Andrew William Barfield

Abstract

Despite the wealth of LI collocation studies and the explosive growth in corpus linguistics in the last 20 years, relatively little research has been conducted into L2 collocation knowledge and development. Most L2 studies have involved isolated single interventions that have taken as their main res...
