hi javid

i think you and i have different ideas about what a 'dictionary' is. :)

i think perhaps you just want to find 'word/phrase-equivalents' in comparable corpora in different languages?

i don't know enough about computational linguistics, but i *suspect* that both SketchEngine and Tshwanelex are for 'fuller' dictionaries, eg with collocational, grammatical, semantic, phraseological info, etc for each entry.... but they can probably be used with a bilingual lookup (eg Wordnet) to link items in the comparable corpora...?

Maybe you want to have a look at alignment tools for comparable corpora such as: - http://www.accurat-project.eu - http://yalign.machinalis.com

I haven't used these tools myself but I would be interested to hear if they work for you.

Good luck! Jörg

Dear Ramesh, I only want to extract dictionary within an aligned bilingual corpus. I know that Moses can do it for parallel and sentence-level aligned corpus, but are the tools like SketchEngine or Tshwanelex extracting such a knowledge? Best, Javid

Hi, Is there any tool for extracting probabilistic bilingual dictionary for a bilingual comparable corpora? Does Moses support such a task? Best, Javid
