Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. The methods and terminology used to present these collocations in the Dictionary are explained in the Introduction.
Much of the material provided in this Dictionary has never before combinayory published. This material is of vital importance to those learners of English who are native speakers of other languages. Heretofore, they have had no source that would consistently indicate, for example, which verbs are used with which nouns they could not find in any existing dictionary such collocations as call an alert, lay down a barrage, hatch a conspiracy, impose an embargo, roll fombinatory hoop, draw up a list, administer an oath, enter make a plea, crack a smile, punch a time clock, inflict a wound, etc.
This Dictionary provides such collocations in order to enable the user of the Dictionary to find them quickly and easily, they are given in the entries for the nouns. Engliish of other languages is normally of no help in finding English collocations.
For administer an oath, French has faire preter serment, Spanish — hacer prestar juramento, German — den Eid abnehmen, Russian—privesti k prisjage, etc. Thousands of similar examples could be cited. The latter work deals with the major problems facing compilers of general-purpose dictionaries of English, includes background information combinator the lexicographic treatment of collocations, describes the lexical, grammatical, and orthographic differences between American English AE and British English BEand provides an extensive bibliography.
This bibliography indicates the major secondary sources used for the BBI Dictionary. These differences are noted in the entries and Usage Notes.

We should, however, like to mention Mrs. Anne Zarit of Philadelphia, whose help was greatly appreciated. In closing, we note with appreciation the guidance, support, and englisy of our friends at John Benjamins BV.
