    Abstract

    This paper introduces another mode of semantic compositionality, particularly regarding verbal Multi-word Expressions (MWE). Our hypothesis is that with the increase in similarity between the paragraphs containing a certain MWE and its separate atomic lexical items, the compositionality between these items inside the MWE also increases. The results are consistent with this hypothesis.
