Abstract

This research was aimed to find out the extent of students‟ grammatical and lexical collocation knowledge at sixth semester students of English Department in academic year 2016/2017. The students were tested by a multiple-choice collocational test comprising 30 items, based on seven patterns of Lewis (2008). The sample was 30 students. Having analyzed the data, the result of students‟ collocational knowledge was good with the mean of 61% and it was possible that the test was barely pass good level. The test result revealed that the students‟ ability in noun + noun collocation was at the highest level (76%), followed by adjective + noun (68%), preposisition + noun (65%), verb + adverb (61%), adjective + preposition (58%), verb + preposition (50%), the students‟ ability in verb + noun collocation was the lowest level (47%). Based on the percentage of the category of collocation, the students‟ ability in lexical collocation was at the highest level (62%). On the contrary, the students‟ ability in grammatical collocations was at the lowest level (57%). Moreover the result concluded that students had good category of collocation, but still in the lower-level of good category.
