This paper I)roposes ;t new tnethod for learning bilingual colloca, tions from sentence-aligned paralM corpora. Our method COml)ris('s two steps: (1) ex- tracting llseftll word chunks (n-grmns) by word-level sorting and (2) construct- ing bilingua,l ('ollocations t)y combining the word-(;hunl(s a(-quired iu stag(' (1). We apply the method to a very ('hal- lenging text l)~tir: a stock market 1)ul- let;in in Japanese and il;s abstract in En-- glish. I)om;tin sl)ecific collocations are well captured ewm if they were not con- ta.ined in the dictionaric's of economic tel?IllS.
