Collocations are defined as syntactically connected and semantically compatible pairs of content components, like Spanish prestar atención ‘give attention’, presidente del país ‘president of the country’, país grande ‘large country’ or muy bien ‘very well’. The collocation databases are important for numerous applications of computational linguistics. A small system storing Spanish collocations is reported. Each collocation is accessible from both its components while querying. As compared with its Russian prototype, its size is now spare and the collocation types are limited to a few most productive ones. However, the available relation of the hyponym/hyperonym type between the systemic dictionary entries permits to infer some additional collocations at runtime. The actual statistics of the system is given.
