Common algorithms for sentence and word-alignment allow the automatic iden- tification of word translations from paxalhl texts. This study suggests that the identi- fication of word translations should also be possible with non-paxMlel and even unre- lated texts. The method proposed is based on the assumption that there is a corre- lation between the patterns of word co- occurrences in texts of different languages.
