Exploiting Translational Correspondences for Pattern-Independent MWE Identification

  title={Exploiting Translational Correspondences for Pattern-Independent MWE Identification},
  author={Sina Zarrie\ss and Jonas Kuhn},
Based on a study of verb translations in the Europarl corpus, we argue that a wide range of MWE patterns can be identified in translations that exhibit a correspondence between a single lexical item in the source language and a group of lexical items in the target language.
