This is the first published edition of Sinclair, Jones and Daley's research on collocation, completed in 1970. The original was arguably the first report on research carried out on an electronically held corpus, and it sparked interest in collocation amongst researchers. J.R.Firt...h argued for a prominent place for collocation some fifty years ago. Soon after, M.A.K. Halliday and John Sinclair published on collocation. English Collocation Studies is a report on empirical research into collocation, financed with grants from the Government's Office for Scientific and Technical Information. This edition contains an interview with John Sinclair, conducted recently by Wolfgang Teubert. The interview assesses the extent to which the findings of the original research have developed in the intervening years, and how some of the techniques mentioned in the report were implemented in the COBUILD project at Birmingham in the 1980s.
