I need a good dictionary of collocations. On Amazon I found these two:

  1. MacMillan Collocations Dictionary

  2. Oxford Collocations Dictionary for students of English

Which is better?

Do you know any other dictionary?

Thank you in advance for your help!


You might look into using corpora, some of which have excellent searching options once you learn their respective syntaxes.

I find BYU corpora, though lacking in curb appeal, to be excellent for collocations. Downside: You may need to create an account and/or limit your number of queries per day unless you're willing to subscribe.
