We present a geometric view on bilingual lexicon extraction from comparable corpora, which allows to re-interpret the methods proposed so far and iden- tify unresolved problems. This motivates three new methods that aim at solving these problems. Empir- ical evaluation shows the strengths and weaknesses of these methods, as well as a significant gain in the accuracy of extracted lexicons.
