ABSTRACT

This study was intended to investigate collocation errors in the interlanguage of Korean adult English learners in terms of grammatical and lexical collocation errors, create a collocation list around the topic given, and make suggestions on how to help them minimize collocation errors. 31 university students participated in the present research and they were asked to write an essay on self-introduction. The results show that most of the collocations produced by the participants were lexical (77.12%). The grammatical and lexical collocation errors amounted to 3.13% and 6.97% respectively. The grammatical ones were mainly related to the misuse or ellipsis of prepositions and the lexical ones were mostly related to the wrong selection of words, wrong arrangement of words, and morphologic errors. The participants’ essays were revised by a native English teacher and a small corpus was built and analyzed. Through these processes, a collocation list around the chosen topic was devised. In order to minimize collocation errors, teachers should encourage students to be involved in extensive reading of a lot of literature written in English and EFL learners should also be encouraged to make effective use of English dictionaries. Lastly, teachers should focus attention on some common collocations, which will help students to be precise in their language use.
