Colocaciones en Español

¿que es eso?

For those non-language nerds out there let’s start with what is a colocación.  Colocaciones en Español are groups of words that often go together or that are likely to occur together.  Let’s take a look at a few examples of collections in English like light sleeper or early riser.  These are words that often go together or occur together.  Make sense?

Now, has a native Spanish speaker ever told you: “That just sounds weird” or “We wouldn’t say it that way”? Well, that might be because you are using the wrong combination of words in Spanish. Solution: Learn collocations. We know that collocations are groups of words that often go together. They’re not expressions or idioms. For example, instead of saying “vino rojo”, people would prefer saying “vino tinto”. Vino rojo is not common and it just sounds weird.

Check out our video to learn more about collocations and hear some examples.
