Written By: Violeta Seretan
Series Title: Text, Speech and Language Technology

Syntax-Based Collocation Extraction is the first book to offer a
comprehensive, up-to-date review of the theoretical and applied work on
word collocations. Backed by solid theoretical results, the computational
experiments described based on data in four languages provide support for
the book’s basic argument for using syntax-driven extraction as an
alternative to the current cooccurrence-based extraction techniques to
efficiently extract collocational data. The work described in Syntax-Based
Collocation Extraction focuses on using linguistic tools for corpus-based
identification of collocations. It takes advantage of recent advances in

that has applicability to a range of important core tasks in Computational
Linguistics. The book is useful for anyone interested in computational
analysis of texts, collocation phenomena, and multi-word expressions in
