Norman Kummer and Joachim Wagner (2002): Phrase processing for detecting collocations with KoKS, In online Proc. of Colloc02 Workshop on Computational Approaches to Collocations, http://www.ai.univie.ac.at/colloc02/, Vienna, Austria
These paper presents an approach to extract semantically opaque collocations from parallel corpora. Possible translation correspondences on phrase level are automatically extracted and ranked by a measure of literalness. We assume that non-literal translations indicate non-compositional semantics of a phrase. The paper discusses corpus preprocessing, alignment and collocativity measure, presents results and discuesses some problems.
