Vocabulary size and depth are two disciplines of vocabulary knowledge that are related. Limitations of vocabulary size are among the causes of students’ failure in reading texts, communicate and produce good writing. This study aims to investigate the relationship between the Arabic vocabulary size and collocation knowledge. A set of Arabic vocabulary size test and another set of collocation test were distributed to form six students who took the Arabic language subject at religious secondary schools on Malaysia. This study uses purposive sampling to select 150 students who are following the Sijil Tinggi Agama Malaysia (STAM) curriculum from four Sekolah Agama Bantuan Kerajaan (SABK) schools in Perak. The findings show that the relationship between vocabulary size and Arabic collocation knowledge is significantly correlated (r =.76, p<.01) and even a strong positive correlation. However, r² variance results prove that only 57.7 percent of the increasement pattern in Arabic collocation is explained by the changes in vocabulary size, the rest by other undetectable factors. Current study successfully highlights that the increase in Arabic collocation knowledge is not contributed completely through mastery of vocabulary size. Students and teachers need to utilise a variety of strategies, approaches and techniques in improving Arabic collocation knowledge. © 2021, Universiti Malaysia Sarawak. All rights reserved.
