We propose a new method to resolve am- biguity in translation and meaning in- terpretation using linguistic statistics ex- tracted from dual corpora of sourcu aud target languages in addition to tim logical restrictions described on dictiomtry and grammar rules for ambiguity resolution. It provides reasonable criteria for deter- mining a suitable equivalent translation or meaning by making tile dependency re- lation in the source language be reflected in the translated text. The method can be tractable because tile required staffs- tics can be computed semi-automatically in advance from a source language corpus and a target language corpus, while an ordinal corpus-based translation method needs a large volume of bilingual corpus of strict pairs of a sentence and its transla- tion.
