This paper presents a simple and effective method for automatic bilingual lexicon extrac- tion from less-known language pairs. To do this, we bring in a bridge language named the pivot language and adopt information retrieval techniques combined with natural language processing techniques. Moreover, we use a freely available word aligner: Anymalign (Lardilleux et al., 2011) for constructing con- text vectors. Unlike the previous works, we obtain context vectors via a pivot language. Therefore, we do not require to translate con- text vectors by using a seed dictionary and im- prove the accuracy of low frequency word alignments that is weakness of statistical mod- el by using Anymalign. In this paper, experi- ments have been conducted on two different language pairs that are bi-d...
