Mensagem: 

Hi everyone

 

Could you help me?

 

I can´t understand the difference between collocations and chunks of language. I

 

think collocations are common word combinations with adjectives, verbs, nouns or

 

prepositions. But what about chunks? I used to think they were the same but I listened

 

to a lecturer say:  you should study collocations and chunks.

 

Thanks in advance.
