The paper is the first report on the experimental MT system developed as part of the Japanese-Russian Automatic tra.aslation Project (JaRAP). The sys- tem follows the transfer approach to MT. Limited so far to lexico-morphologieal processing, it is seen as a foundation for more ambitious linguistic research. The system is implemented on IBM PC, MS DOS, in Arity Prolog (analysis and transfer) and Turbo Pascal (synthesis). 1 Theoretical background The development of the Jall.AP experimental sys- tem was preceded by a long period of purely theoretic research into various aspects of natu- ral language ~'td its functioning in translatio~t (see, e.g., (Shalyaplna~lO80a,1980b,1988)). Some of the basic principles which have evolved from this re- search may be summarized ~m follows. (1) The most ad...
