In this paper we discuss how we all- ply discourse predictions along with non context-based predictions to the prob- lem of parse disambiguation in Enthusi- ast, a Spanish-to-English translation sys- tem (Woszcyna et al. , 1993; Snhm et al. , 1994; Levin el; al. , 1995). We discuss extensions to our plan-based discourse processor in order to make this possi- ble. We evaluate those extensions and demonstrate the advantage of exploiting context-based predictions over a purely non context-based approach.
