The extraction of Multiword Lexical Units (MLUs) in lexica is important to language related methods such as Natural Language Processing (NLP) and machine translation. As one word in one language may be translated into an MLU in another language, the extraction of MLUs plays an important role in Cross-Language Information Retrieval (CLIR), especially in finding the translation for words that are not in a dictionary. Web mining has been used for translating the query terms that are missing from dictionaries. MLU extraction is one of the key parts in search engine based translation. The MLU extraction result will finally affect the transition quality. Most statistical approaches to MLU extraction rely on large statistical information from huge corpora. In the case of search engine based translation, those approaches do not perform well because the size of corpus returned from a search engine is usually small. In this paper, we present a new string measurement and new Chinese MLU extraction process that works well on small corpora.
