F1 Impact on Reception and Production of Delexical Verbs Collocations by Arabic EFL Learners

Ali Ahmed Suleiman


Abstract: The importance of collocating delexical verbs and their role in conveying meaning enables EFL learners to achieve native-like communication accuracy. The purpose of this study is to investigate the types and sources of delexical collocation errors and to determine the extent L1 interference affects the reception and production of English delexical verb collocation. This study focuses on four semantically similar delexical verbs: do, make, take, and have, which often cause confusion for EFL learners when collocated with head nouns. The results of the study show a strong influence of the L1 on the perception and production of the collocation of delexical verbs. The article concludes with some pedagogical implications and recommendations that could improve the quality of teaching, learning, and comprehension of collocations with delexical verbs.
