    Collocation


    What is collocation?


    If you want to use a word naturally, you need to learn the other words that often go with it. This can be different from language to language. For example, in English we say:
    I missed the bus (=I didn't catch the bus)(Not=> I lost the bus)
    He had to go to hospital;it's a serious injury. (=a bad injury) (Not=> a grave injury.)

     

    Complete these sentences with a suitable word.
