Collocational information and its patterns are said to be language specific. This paper attempts to identify some Hausa lexical collocations from phraseological continua. In achieving the aim of the study, a general overview of Hausa collocational patterns is given from the works of its predecessors. The paper uses a textbased corpus extraction as a method of data collection to attest that Hausa has several classifications of lexical collocations. For analysis, the study adopts Firth’s (1957a) Contextual Field Theory to discuss how the patterns are operated in Hausa. Ultimately, the paper advocates the use of text-based corpus data for collocational extractions in order to justify the substantiation of those collocational patterns identified with Hausa language.
