Woordcombinaties (Word Combinations) is to be a new online lexicographic resource in which a Dutch collocation and idiom dictionary will be combined with a pattern dictionary. We believe that the combination of these dictionary types will be of great value to language learners and teachers. In this paper we present the three-year pilot in which we design the project and start with the description of the combinatorics of a selection of verbs for advanced learners of Dutch as a second language. We will merge a pattern dictionary of Dutch verbs, following the example of the Pattern Dictionary of English Verbs (PDEV),1 with a collocation application, following the example of Sketch Engine for Language Learning (SkeLL).2 In a follow-up to this pilot, more verbs and the combinatorics of nouns and adjectives will be dealt with. The long-term purpose of Woordcombinaties is a fully-fledged phraseological resource for Dutch.
