Multiwords are vital to better precision and recall in NLP applications. The Lexical Systems Group (LSG) developed an effective approach to add multiwords to the SPECIALIST Lexicon from the MEDLINE n-gram set. This paper describes a frequency analysis on LexMultiwords (LMWs) and acronym expansions based on the word count (WC) in MEDLINE. Results show most LMWs locate in the low WC range with better precision and F1 score.
