The Collocaid™ project aims to address this problem by developing a tool to help EAP writers with academic collocations in real time. To achieve this, we have begun working on the compilation of a lexicographic database that supports novice EAP users’ collocation needs (Frankenberg-Garcia et al. 2017). Parallel to this, we are developing a tool that will enable writers to instantaneously visualise collocations from within a text editor (Roberts et al. 2017).
