Particularly, the study has focused on the relationship between lexical item and in the grammatical context, lexical item and a particular syntactic function in which the item can be used and lexical item-the position in a phrase, clause, sentence, text or discourse in which the item can be used. Most frequent colligation phrases are taken from the corpus by using Chi Square Test method.The finding of the study shows that different word forms of the same lexeme have often noticeably different distributional patterns, different inflectional forms of adjectives colligate with adjectival and verbal phrases and different inflectional adjectives have been shown to prefer different syntactic position.
