The precise identification of light verb constructions is crucial for the successful functioning of several NLP applications. In order to facilitate the development of an algorithm that is capable of recogniz- ing them, a manually annotated corpus of light verb constructions has been built for Hungarian. Basic annotation guidelines and statistical data on the corpus are also presented in the paper. It is also shown how applications in the fields of machine translation and information extraction can make use of such a corpus and an algo- rithm.
