This paper presents a method of retriev- ing bilingual collocations of a verb and its objective noun from cross-lingual docu- ments with similar contents. Relevant doc- uments are obtained by integrating cross- language hierarchies. The results showed a 15.1% improvement over the baseline non- hierarchy model, and a 6.0% improvement over use of relevant documents retrieved from a single hierarchy. Moreover, we found that some of the retrieved colloca- tions were domain-specific.
