This paper presents a tool for extrac- ting multi-word expressions from cor- pora in Modern Greek, which is used to- getherwithaparallelconcordancertoaug- ment the lexicon of a rule-based machine- translation system. The tool is part of a larger extraction system that relies, in turn, on a multilingual parser developed over the past decade in our laboratory. The paper reviews the various NLP modules and resources which enable the retrieval of Greek multi-word expressions and their translations: the Greek parser, its lexical database, the extraction and concordanc- ing system.
