We propose a simple unsupervised ap- proach to detecting non-compositional components in multiword expressions based on Wiktionary. The approach makes use of the definitions, synonyms and trans- lations in Wiktionary, and is applicable to any type of MWE in any language, assum- ing the MWE is contained in Wiktionary. Our experiments show that the proposed approach achieves higher F-score than state-of-the-art methods.
