This paper focuses on the use of advanced techniques of text analysis as support for collocation extraction. A hybrid system is presented that combines statistical meth- ods and multilingual parsing for detecting accurate collocational information from English, French, Spanish and Italian cor- pora. The advantage of relying on full parsing over using a traditional window method (which ignores the syntactic in- formation) is first theoretically motivated, then empirically validated by a compara- tive evaluation experiment.
