Abstract:
The paper presents a comparison of time expressions translations from Slovak to Bulgarian language using existing Bulgarian-Slovak/Slovak-Bulgarian electronic text corpora. It uses techniques of concordances and collocations generation from sentence aligned parallel bilingual text corpora to compare semantic content and related translations. The approach is applicable in language teaching and is useful for teaching less resourced languages.
