This paper introduces an attempt at collecting a corpus of various usages of Japanese predicates and synonymous expressions in English. We have learned that an effective consideration to exhaustively collect such various usages is to continue to create new sentences until no more sentences can be conceived within one language. We have found that an effective way of collecting synonymous expressions of predicates in Japanese- English or English-Japanese translation, is to create translations of the synonymous expressions and expand them to example sets of multiple pairs.
