SciE-Lex is a lexical database of the most usual collocations of English non-technical words used in scientific language. This lexical database gives information about the meanings and the grammatical and collocational patterns of general words used in scientific English. SciE-Lex was prompted by the shortage of reference tools offering such information, since dictionaries of scientific terms usually provide information about the meaning of specialized words and/or their equivalents in other languages.
