    Colocation or Collocation?

    I always thought it was colocation, but Word insists it is Collocation...

    Anyone know for sure? Or are both appropriate?

    We use "colocation", but check out this link:

    http://dictionary.com/search?q=colocation

    The debate is an old one... Personally, I think the word needs to evolve into "colocation". The sum of the parts "co" and "location" means so much more than the grammatically formed "co-location". Talk about an old geeky debate.

    I think it's "colo" Just as "electronic mail" went to "e-mail" and then to "email".

    Yeah, along those terms I've always thought of it as "colocation"

    collocation just sounds daft

    pronouced "col" "location"

    co-location or colocation is much better

    Technically it is collocation and any major companies contract will read as such.

    Blah... it's all of them...

    colocation/co-location/collocation all mean the same thing. It's kind of like:

    2 and two. They mean the same thing, yet they look different.

    co-location looks the best.

    I think the correct word is collocation, double "l" in this case because when "co" stands before "l" it makes "l" double such as the words college or colleague. So co-location or colocation, gramatically speaking is not correct, but since it's common use therefore it got pardon I think
