Abstract [en]

The background to this study is that the field within language education known as collocations is being lost to students. The overall aim of this study was to examine what view foreign language teachers had on the field and how they taught it to their students. This study therefore conducted a survey to compare sentences consisting of wrongly used collocations with other common mistakes that students make. It also conducted interviews on how collocations was seen and taught in school by language teachers. 34 informants answered the survey and four teachers were interviewed to further investigate how collocations were presented to the students. The results were then compared and analyzed. The survey showed that wrongly used collocations were not seen as severe as other common mistakes of language. The interview showed that the teachers had not come in contact with the expression prior to the interviews and that collocations were not taught to the students as a separate field of language. The results are of value for foreign language teachers, practicing teachers and students themselves. The results indicate the need for further development in language classroom teaching and that understanding how collocations apply to language could be very beneficial to learn for students.
