Collocational Errors in the Speaking English of Adult Iranian EFL Learners:
A Corpus-Based Analysis
I am indebted to so many people that listing and thanking them all for the different ways they helped me is simply not possible in this limited space, but I thank each one of them in my heart. First and foremost, I am honored to thank Dr. Fahimeh Ma’refat, my supervisor, for her unfailing patience, constant encouragement, and invaluable comments during the preparation of this thesis. She has been extremely indefatigable, patient and supportive in all my years as a graduate student in Allameh Tabataba’i University and has enormously contributed to my understanding of EFL domain throughout her courses and in various classes with her effective teaching and constructive criticism. I shall not forget her name for the rest of my life.
I am deeply indebted to Dr. Mehdi Nowruzi Khiabani, my advisor, who kindly provided me with invaluable insight in his field of expertise and continuous encouragement. I also wish to thank him for his informative article on the sources of collocational clashes between Persian and English, and his helpful comments on an earlier draft of this paper.
My most sincere gratitude also goes to Dr. Gholamreza Tajvidi, a man of noble character with a heart of gold, who kindly accepted the responsibility for reading my thesis and made undeniably helpful revisions to the final draft of the paper.
I have learnt about English Language Teaching from many professors, all of whom are devoted to academic excellence and the promotion of the students’ knowledge. I would like to appreciate Dr. Parviz Birjandi, Dr. Zia Tajuddin, Dr. Mansour Fahim and Dr. Mohammad Khatib all of whom, in one way or another, broadened my knowledge of teaching methodology and linguistics.
I can not thank my parents especially my late mother, Shahrbanoo, whose love for learning was always inspiring. Had not been for them, I could not have finished my master's degree. I am also very fortunate in having siblings like Katayoon, Homayoon and Muhammad, and nephews like Farhad who have continuously comforted me during our phone calls when I was away from home and have actively encouraged me to carry out my studies.
I owe special gratitude to Mrs. Arezoo Asgarifar, a wonderful spouse, who has provided me with abundant emotional support since the first moment I met her.
Last but not least, I greatly appreciate the help of all English language learners, among many others, who provided me with needed data.
