Problem Statement: Collocations are frequent constructions that pertain to the level of language between the lexicon and grammar. In order to reach advanced proficiency levels and to communicate effectively and fluently, foreign language learners must acquire the knowledge of numerous collocations. However, it is observed in the literature that even advanced learners have problems in using correct collocations, especially with verb-noun collocations. It is, therefore, important for learners to be frequently exposed to collocations.
