Corpus-driven description of multi-word patterns

  • This paper presents our model of ‘MultiWord Patterns’ (MWPs). MWPs are defined as recurrent frozen schemes with fixed lexical components and productive slots that have a holistic – but not necessarily idiomatic – meaning and/or function, sometimes only on an abstract level. These patterns can only be reconstructed with corpus-driven, iterative (qualitative-quantitative) methods. This methodology includes complex phrase searches, collocation analysis that not only detects significant word pairs, but also significant syntagmatic cotext patterns and slot analysis with our UWV Tool. This tool allows us to bundle KWICs in order to detect the nature of lexical fillers for and to visualize MWP hierarchies.
