This paper studies the potential of extracting lexical paraphrases from a single corpus, focusing on the extraction of verb paraphrases. Most previous approaches detect individual paraphrase instances within a pair (or set) of comparable corpora, each of them containing roughly the same information, and rely on the substantial level of correspondence of such corpora. We present a novel method that successfully detects isolated paraphrase instances within a single corpus without relying on any a-priori structure and information.
