ParaDi: Dictionary of Paraphrases of Czech Complex Predicates with Light Verbs

Petra Barančíková, Václava Kettnerová


Abstract
We present a new freely available dictionary of paraphrases of Czech complex predicates with light verbs, ParaDi. Candidates for single predicative paraphrases of selected complex predicates have been extracted automatically from large monolingual data using word2vec. They have been manually verified and further refined. We demonstrate one of many possible applications of ParaDi in an experiment with improving machine translation quality.
