Description This paper presents evaluation of different approaches to extract verb-noun idiomatic expressions in Czech. These approaches are based on the structure of the idiom and its behavior in language. PMI and syntactic and lexical fixedness modified using VerbaLex and generated thesaurus provide useful tool for choosing best idiomatic candidates for manual annotation and evaluation. Moreover we focused on general adapting the algorithms for Czech.
