Collocate is a verb that means to be paired with or arranged side by side. Words can collocate with each other, like peanut butter and jelly. It can be used with or without an object, in other words, can be transitive or intransitive. The word is being used more often these days in business or science.

      You have “words cam” instead of “can” in your second sentence here.
      You might want to do a “commonly confused words” piece comparing collocate with co-locate (of two or more things, to share a site or location), I distinction with which I have seen people struggle.
