This paper proposes an approach for bilingual dictionary extraction from comparable corpora. The proposed approach is based on the obser- vation that a word and its translation share similar dependency relations. Experimental re- sults using 250 randomly selected translation pairs prove that the proposed approach signifi- cantly outperforms the traditional context- based approach that uses bag-of-words around translation candidates.
