Drouin, Patrick. 2003. Term extraction using non-technical corpora as a point of departure. Terminology 9 (1) : 99–115.


This paper describes a hybrid term extraction technique for technical corpora. The main goal is to reduce the amount of noise in the list of candidate terms by restricting the lexical items that can appear inside candidate terms. In order to do so, the term extraction process is based on lexical items selected by a statistical test that targets items that are highly specific to the technical corpus being analyzed.
