TEACHING COLLOCATION

  • SKILLS: HOW & WHICH


HOW?

  • Teaching individual collocations ( activities & exercises).

  • Making students aware of collocations. Noticing.

  • Extending what students already know( de-lexicalised words).

  • Storing collocations: organised lexical notebook


Which
WHICH?

  • Unique collocations( foot the bill, shrug your shoulders)

  • Strong collocations ( ulterior motives, rancid butter, trenchant criticism, to be moved to tears)

  • Weak collocations ( white wine, red hair, a black mood, a blue movie)

  • Medium-strength collocations ( to hold a conversation, to make a mistake, to be recovering from a major operation)


Pedagogical implications
Pedagogical implications

  • Review the language content of the course (consider frequency, type and level of the course)

  • Increase language input (quantity, type, quality)

  • Review teaching strategies at different levels

  • Translation shouldn`t be discarded

  • What our language model should be?


Language
LANGUAGE...

  • is proven to be a mixture of the totally novel, the absolutely fixed,the relatively fixed, and all held together with fairly simple structures which we call grammar.


.

LESS GRAMMAR, MORE LEXIS!
