Title:
What matters more: the size of the corpora or their quality? The case of automatic translation of multiword expressions using comparable corpora.
Authors:
Mitkov, Ruslan; Taslimipoor, Shiva
Abstract:
This study investigates (and compares) the impact of the size and the similarity/quality of comparable corpora on the specific task of extracting translation equivalents of verb-noun collocations from such corpora. The comprehensive evaluation of different configurations of English and Spanish corpora sheds some light on the more general and perennial question: what matters more – the quantity or quality of corpora?
