We investigate the lexical and syntactic flexibility of a class of idiomatic expres- sions. We develop measures that draw on such linguistic properties, and demon- strate that these statistical, corpus-based measures can be successfully used for dis- tinguishing idiomatic combinations from non-idiomatic ones. We also propose a means for automatically determining which syntactic forms a particular idiom can appear in, and hence should be in- cluded in its lexical representation.
