Distinguishing subtypes of multiword expressions using linguistically-motivated statistical measures. ACL2007 Workshop on Multiword Expressions: A Broader Perspective on Multiword Expressions

By Afsaneh Fazly and Suzanne Stevenson


We identify several classes of multiword expressions that each require a different encoding in a (computational) lexicon, as well as a different treatment within a computational system. We examine linguistic properties pertaining to the degree of semantic idiosyncrasy of these classes of expressions. Accordingly, we propose statistical measures to quantify each property, and use the measures to automatically distinguish the classes.
