Today you are going to learn the business collocation – bull market. A collocation is a group of words that are commonly used together to form another meaning separate from their individual words. So, for bull market – separately “bull” and “market” don’t seem to go together for any reason. But together, “bull market” means – a stock market with rising prices for shares.

Go to businessnenglishace.com/1 SEGMENT VII Business English Ace Twisted English Do you read financial news in English and often wonder what the headline means? Well, our Twisted English segment is here to help you! Twisted English is when you and I examine an actual business news headline in English. But these news headlines have a twist. Headline writers have to be clever and often use phrases to attract your attention – the twist. In the last episode, Episode 48, you learned about the phrase: Shocking Taser You may go back and listen to Episode 48 at http://www.businessenglishace.com/bear48. Today’s headline in our Twisted English series is: DreamWorks’ Nightmare Shows No Sign of Ending.
9. Business English Ace Radio – Class Notes 9 ©2016 Wham Media What does the expression “Dreamwork’s nightmare” signify? Dreamwork is a movie production company owned by famous director Steven Speilberg. The twist in the headline comes from combining Dreamworks – dreaming which is what you do when you sleep - with the term which is the opposite of a dream. A nightmare is a bad dream. Thus, the headline could be rewritten as Dreamwork’s Bad Dream Shows No Sign of Ending. So, according to the headline, Dreamworks is having difficulties.
