We analyse Hindi complex predicates and propose linguistic tests for their de- tection. This analysis enables us to iden- tify a category of V+V complex predi- cates called lexical compound verbs (LCpdVs) which need to be stored in the dictionary. Based on the linguistic analy- sis, a simple automatic method has been devised for extracting LCpdVs from cor- pora. We achieve an accuracy of around 98% in this task. The LCpdVs thus ex- tracted may be used to automatically augment lexical resources like wordnets, an otherwise time consuming and labour- intensive process
