Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review

Electronic versions

Despite the existence of excellent resources that writers can use to look up collocations – for example, general language dictionaries, collocation dictionaries, corpora and tools like SkELL, Just the Word or FlaxLC – writers may not be aware of them, or may simply not realize that their use of collocations could be enhanced. Another problem is that looking up collocations whilst writing can be distracting and disruptive. This is particularly true when coping with cognitively demanding tasks, such as academic writing. This demo introduces you to ColloCaid, a text editor that provides academic English writers with collocation suggestions as they write.
