The present study is descriptive, contrastive and analytic because it describes collocation for the purpose of finding out the similarities and differences between English and Arabic. It aims at describing and comparing collocation in English and Arabic through identifying its basic linguistic aspects which are syntactic, semantic, pragmatic and textual. This study concludes that collocation exists in English and Arabic as a linguistic phenomenon and the two languages study the term from all its linguistic aspects. However, the way to describe collocation linguistically is different to some extent from one language into another.
