Analyzing compound nouns is one of the cru- cial issues for natural language processing sys- tems, in particular for those systems that aim at a wide coverage of domaius. In this paper, we pro- pose a mcthod to analyze structures of Japanese compound nouns by using both word collocations statistics and a thesaurus. An experiment is con- ducted with 160,000 word collocations to analyze comlmund nouns of with an average length of 4.9 characters. The accuracy of this method is about 80%.
