Abstract:

This book examines delexical verb + noun collocations such as 'make a
decision', 'give rise to' and 'take care of'  in Swedish and Chinese learner
English. Using a methodological framework that combines learner corpus
research with a contrastive perspective, the study is one of the very few in
the field to incorporate corpora of the learner’s L1 to investigate the
effects of L1 influence. The book provides a highly detailed and multi-faceted
analysis of delexical verb + noun collocations in terms of frequency of
occurrence, lexical preferences and morphosyntactic patterns. Quantitative and
qualitative results on overuse, underuse and errors are presented with
linguistically and pedagogically relevant interpretations that include
cultural and discourse aspects. More importantly, the book throws light on how
L2 learners may alternate between the open-choice principle and the idiom
principle as well as the extent and nature of L1 influence on their
collocational use.
