The aim of this volume is to give an overview of the most recent research on collocations and to allow the reader to obtain a more universal picture of the phenomenon. This volume deals with collocations in different languages: four Romance languages (French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish), two Germanic languages (English and German), one Slavic language (Russian) and one belonging to the Finno-Ugric family (Finnish). The main areas of research represented are phraseology, lexicography and language teaching, which are areas that often overlap. In addition, some computational approaches are presented as well. The reader has a possibility to observe that even though languages have the different phases of research on collocations, they still walk on similar paths.
