This paper addresses an important problem in Example-Based Machine Translation (EBMT), namely how to measure similarity between a sentence fragment and a set of stored examples. A new method is proposed that measures similarity according to both surface structure and content. A second contribution is the use of clustering to make retrieval of the best matching example from the database more efficient. Results on a large number of test cases from the CELEX database are presented.
