Here, we introduce a machine learning- based approach that allows us to identify light verb constructions (LVCs) in Hun- garian and English free texts. We also present the results of our experiments on the SzegedParalellFX English?Hungarian parallel corpus where LVCs were manu- ally annotated in both languages. With our approach, we were able to contrast the performance of our method and define language-specific features for these typo- logically different languages. Our pre- sented method proved to be sufficiently ro- bust as it achieved approximately the same scores on the two typologically different languages.
