Abstract

Collocations, as well as colligations and other co-occurrence patterns, play an important role in corpus linguistics, psycholinguistics and usage-based grammar and lexicology. To measure the degree of attraction between words and other units, one can use diverse association measures, such as collostructional strength, Pointwise Mutual Information or <i>&#916;P</i>. From this chapter you will learn how to compute a variety of association measures using a small set of different co-occurrence frequencies. The case study is based on co-occurrence frequencies of different verbs in the Russian ditransitive construction.
