Marcos García Salido, 2017: "Frecuencia y corrección colocacional en la producción
escrita de aprendices de español",
Onomázein 38, 22-46.
This study aims to establish whether there is any relation between the correctness of collocations
present in the writings of learners of Spanish and the association their members
display in a representative corpus of this language. In order to do that, starting from a sample
of collocations extracted from a learner corpus where they have previously been identified by
means of phraseological criteria, I study their frequency in a representative corpus of Spanish.
Based on these data, I try to establish if the association between the constituents of a
collocation, as measured in terms of frequency of co-occurrence and mutual information,
has any influence on the probability wherewith learners produce such collocation correctly.
