The acquisition and processing of English collocations in native and non-native speakers.
This research project aims at investigating how Chinese speakers of English as a second language process English collocations, how their processing of collocations differs from native English speakers’ and different factors that could influence their processing, for example semantic transparency, frequency and congruence. This study also looks at how Chinese speakers of English acquire collocations.
