Abstract

Multi-word units are linguistic objects whose idiosyncrasy calls for a lexicalized approach allowing to render their orthographic, inflectional and syntactic flexibility. Multiflex is a graph-based formalism answering this need by conflation of different surface realizations of the same underlying concept. Its implementation relies on a finite-state machinery with unification. It can be applied to the creation of linguistic resources for a high-quality natural language processing tasks.
