What are collocations in English?Collocation is words that are used regularly with a specific word. For example, three collocation words for the word 'friend' are 'best, 'good,' and 'loyal.' Here are some example sentences:
"She talks to her best friend every day."
"He lives with some good friends."
*The word 'close' is another collocation that can be used in the place of 'good' such as "He lives with some close friends."
"She has been a loyal friend for many years."
(loyal, real, trusted, true, faithful)
*All the words in the parenthesis can be used in the place of 'loyal.' These are other examples of collocations for the word 'friend.'
