Italian dictionaries of collocations
Abstract: In this paper we describe all Italian collocation dictionaries available at the moment. The four dictionaries are very different in their approach and results. We analyse the theoretical background of each dictionary (although this issue is not extensively addressed or not addressed at all by the authors), and more practical aspects ranging from the creation of the lemma list and the selection of collocations to the lemma structure and the presentation of grammatical and semantic information. The paper highlights the major achievements and shortcomings of the four dictionaries, with the aim to provide some interesting food for thought for future lexicographic work.
Keywords: collocations, lexicography, Italian
