A collocation is a group of words that usually go together. For example, in English, we usually say ‘heavy rain’. It’s correct grammatically to say ‘strong rain’ or ‘big rain’, but both of these sound completely strange. A native English speaker would never say ‘big rain’. … Collocations are very, very important.
- Deep: Deep feeling, deep pockets, deep sleep, deep trouble.
- Heavy: Heavy rain, heavy sleeper, a heavy drinker, heavy snow, heavy traffic.
- Strong: Strong smell, strong sense, strong denial.
