  author={Gerlof Bouma},

}
In this paper, we discuss the related information theoretical association measures of mutual information and pointwise mutual information, in the context of collocation extraction. We introduce normalized variants of these measures in order to make them more easily interpretable and at the same time less sensitive to occurrence frequency. We also provide a small empirical study to give more insight into the behaviour of these new measures in a collocation extraction setup.
