Collocations for Lawyers

 

Let's start the year with this important topic that can help you express yourself more naturally and professionally.

Collocations, are also known as 'word combinations'.  To form a good collocation, you must combine words in a sentence in the same way that native English speakers do. 

An example of a good collocation is 'to make a decision'. The collocation is formed by putting the verb 'make' with the noun "decision" A bad collocation would be 'to do a decision'. The judge 'adjourned the case' until a later date is a good collocation; The Judge 'suspended the case' until a later date is an incorrect collocation.

Check out the video to understand this topic in more detail. I cover 4 different types of collocations:

1. Verb and noun

2. Phrasal Verb and noun

3. Adjective and noun

4. Verb and adverb
