Colloction in Iraq EFL Grauate Lfarners

Abstract

This paper describes how teachers can help students learn vocabulary more efficiently and effectively by focusing on word association or combination patterns, collocation. Collocational competence has been paid little attention in spite of its importance and great influence on vocabulary learning in EFL learners (English as a foreign language)(Channell,J.1981:119;Benson, 1989, 1990).
