Using Collocation To Communicate

Author : Gerardo Burns

Communication plays a vital role in this world especially in every person's life. We communicate to express what we want to say to other people. It plays a big role in which society cannot progress without communication. We communicate in a lot of different ways, may it be through words, gestures, signals, and a lot more you never thought people use to convey messages.

There are a lot of number ways to get our messages and ideas across. We use different methods to get what we want, to say what we want to say and express how we feel. One of the most effective ways to communicate is by using words.

Through words, we are able to send out exactly what we want to say. We go to school in order to learn how to communicate properly and effectively. Our teachers taught even taught us the English language just so we can communicate and understand people from other countries.

One thing that we learned in school is using collocation to communicate. Simply put, collocation is a combination of words may it be two or more to signify one thing. When used separately, these words would mean an entirely different thing. One good example is the word hotdog. We all know that when hotdog is broken down into two words, they would mean completely different. Hot and dog are two words put together to convey a kind of food. Collocation as taught in school has different kinds. The words could be combinations of verb and noun, a noun and a verb, adjective and adverb, noun and adjective, and could be a combination of both nouns, among others.

One example of collocation combining adjective with noun is happy feet. An example which combines verb and noun would be walking dictionary. Extremely happy is another one which is a combination of adverb and adjective. Other examples of collocation are: take a vacation, light rain, completely awesome, bear witness. Collocations are basically compositional and allows communicators to express themselves well because it allows the use of words that would suit best to what they are feeling.

A lot of people find collocation as a very interesting area to learn as well as teach. Teaching collocation however requires research and extensive knowledge on the subject as words tend to give out different meanings when combined.
