Where can I find a dictionary that contains words along with their commonly accepted "neighbors"?
I had one, but it's not for English language. The structure of this dictionary is the following. Take a noun in this dictionary. Along with its brief definition, the dictionary shows what adjectives, verbs, and other parts of speech are appropriate to use with this noun.
E.g., a "day." Possible adjectives: "sunny," "long," "bad," etc. Verbs: "spend," "waste," etc. And so forth for many instances. Quite a handy thing for writing.
What English dictionaries offer similar capacities?
PS: It's not about simple collocations or corpuses and ngrams that don't differentiate parts of speech, like Corpus Concordance English. It's important to have this part-of-speech distinction.
