The paper proposes a methodology for deal- ing with multiword expressions in natu- ral language processing applications. It provides a practically justified taxonomy of such units, and suggests the ways in which the individual classes can be pro- cessed computationally. While the study is currently limited to Polish and English, we believe our findings can be successfully em- ployed in the processing of other languages, with emphasis on inflectional ones.
