comment Verb/noun pairs in German (collocation)
To partially answer the question: Yes, of course, there's a tendency. There's a good reason why collocation dictionaries exist. However, you cannot put this in a 'rule' similar to the order of adjectives. – If you'd like to know which verb/nouns often go together, I'm afraid but there's no good German corpus providing this feature. Wortschatz-Portal gives you the most significant collocations, but I'm truly missing an equivalent to BNC(British English) or COCA(American English).
