系好安全带 is the standard announcement on planes.

 

I have no doubt that you're right. But the way it works when I fly is that it starts with a somewhat formal overhead announcement, then the flight attendants walk through the plane several times reminding all passengers to do the "safety things." All together, I must hear the same two or three phrases 30 or 40 times during take-off and landing. Not all staff members use identical wording.

请把一根香蕉给我 would be incorrect according to the grammar books.

The old thing again. It's not just about fluency.  Actually I didn't find anything wrong. (a typical No-chinese-speak-like-textbook-did problem)

btw in my dialect we say "请把根香蕉把我啊" maybe that's the point.

Nope.  把 means give in the dialect I use. The sentence can be rewritten as 请把我根香蕉. That's same.

Winding back to the original post: this is really useful.  

I believe that, in general, we're talking about collocations here. i.e. words that usually go together.  

 

Are there any good resources for how Chinese uses collocations?

what dialect is it?

Zhenjiang dialect. It is quite hard to learn, for nearly no learning materials can be found. I can use that just because my family was from the city. 

(btw we have 6 tones in the dialect, the low-falling, the high-rising, the falling-rising, the high-rising, the entering and the neutral tone, quite complicated.)
