Abstract: In search of diversification of the teaching process, the paper suggests that foreign language can be acquired relying on word associations and at the same time involving binomial pairs. To provide a relatively substantial data on word associations a survey has been done. Two words for drinks and their word associates from the binomial perspective are at the core of the research. A couple of subsections can be distinguished in it as different groups of respondents have completed two types of a questionnaire. A comparison between the associations produced in a mother tongue and in a foreign language contribute to the understanding of the way words are stored in learner’s mind. In addition, the research leans on a couple of corpora which illustrate the aspect of language usage surprisingly different at times from what can be inferred from the answers of the informants.
Keywords: word associate, binomial, tea, coffee, English.
