Corous-based and corpus-driven approaches to the study of collocation

Wei, Naixing  
This paper addresses the features and issues in two major approaches to collocational study in corpus linguistics, a corpus-based approach and a corpus-driven approach. In the corpus-based approach, concordance data is extracted from a corpus on a random basis and examined within a colligational framework to generalize the collocational behaviour of a key word. In the corpus-driven approach, a set of notions and procedures, including the node, the span, the collocates and statistical measures, are designed and adopted to determine collocational patterning of words. Softwares can also be used to extract continuous lexical clusters from corpus in the latter approach. Major principles in conducting the two types of study are then discussed.
