This paper investigates Hausa noun-based lexical collocations from the viewpoint of phraseological continuum. The objective of the study is to examine Hausa noun based lexical collocations. The research employs the use of a text-based corpus extraction as a method of data collection and adopts Geeraerts (2010) (Lexical) Field Theory to model and examine how the patterns of such us are operated in Hausa through their structural lexical-semantic and context-dependent relations. The study discovers that collocational information within the frame of lexical-(semantic) field provides conceptual specificity of collocative meaning and/or disambiguates lexical polysemy. The study promotes the sizeable use of text-based corpus data for collocational extractions in order to justify the substantiation of those collocational patterns identified in Hausa language.
Keywords: collocation, context, Hausa, lexical collocations, nounbased, semantic relations.
