Collocates are words that occur near a given word (the node word), and they can provide very useful insight into the meaning and usage of the words by which they occur.

This site contains the largest and most accurate lists of collocates of English -- up to 4.3 million node/collocate pairs. Feel free to take a look at the some samples (expanded: 45,000 entries).

Remember that any list of collocates is only as good as the corpus (collection of texts) that it is based on. The 4.3 million node/collocate pairs are based on the only large, genre-balanced, up-to-date corpus of English -- the 450 million word Corpus of Contemporary American English (COCA).
