I'm looking for an English-language dictionary that focuses on word-combinations, as opposed to idioms. There are plenty of dictionaries that cover "proper" idioms like "Let the cat out of the bag" or "Spill the beans", but I need something that will collect bromides, cliches, common similes, terms of art, and combinations of words that just happen to occur together a lot ("firm grip", "aquiline nose", etc.). Most "regular" dictionaries cover these phrases and combinations as well, but they're not the primary focus, and consequently the dictionaries aren't that exhaustive when listing them.
