Set Word Combinations

By April 14, 2013

Follow me on:

Certain verbs are much more common than others and will be found in a wide range of set combinations with other words. These are referred to as collocations. For example, keep an appointment, take a break, pay a fine, etc. Use these sheets to help learn or teach important word combinations.

Catch, Pay, and Keep
Come, Get and Feel
Miss, Get, Do and Make
Save, Find and Go
Take, Have and Break
