Fetching Lexico-Syntactic patterns from text rely on pairs of words (positive instances) that represent the target relation, and finding their simultaneous occurrence in text corpus. Due to existence of WordNet thesaurus (which contains the semantic relationship between words), collecting positive instances is easy. In non-english languages, it's hard to collect large number of positive instances in various contexts. We investigated some new ideas for collecting them in Persian language and finally run the best one and collected approximately 6,000 positive instances.
