The analysis phase in an indirect, transfer and global approach to machine translation is studied. The analysis conducted can be described as exhaus- tive (meaning with backtracking), depth-first and strategically and heuristically driven, while the gran~nar used is an augmented context free grammar. The problem areas, being pattern matching, ambigui- ties, forward propagation, checking for correctness and backtracking, are highlighted. Established results found in the literature are employed whenever adaptable, while suggestions are given otherwise.
