Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organization (TAG-Org) has issued the Collocations Dictionary, the sixth in a series of dictionaries launched and published by the group.
The book is prefaced by a word from TAG-Org’s Chairman, HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, who said the dictionary has come to “unveil the richness of our vivid language, Arabic.”
He gave examples of some Arabic collocations that raise the curious question of why such combinations of words insist on coming together to give new meanings. He said:"Collocations are indeed commonly used words so interlinked that they convey together an accurate and beautiful meaning. Learning collocations will give the users
immediate powers of expressions in Arabic and will further attach his ties with his native tongue as part of “linguistic empowerment”.
