Russian-English Dictionary of Verbal Collocations (REDVC)eBook - 1993
All languages are characterized by the regular cooccurrence of certain words; for example, we say in English, tall building but high mountain. These recurrent combinations or collocations are peculiar to each individual language and cannot be predicted by a learner of that language. There are thousands of striking collocational differences between English and Russian, which are of vital importance to language learners and translators. The REDVC lists Russian verbal collocations and translates them into English. Whenever possible, corresponding English collocations are used in the translations.
