In this paper the organization of the gram- mars in the Rosetta machine translation system is described and it is shown how this organization makes it possible to translate between words of dif- ferent syntactic categories in a systematic way.

The central concept worked out here in some detail is the concept of 'partial iso- morphy' between subgrammars. The system as de- scribed here has been implemented and is currently being tested. 1 ROSETTA In this section I will mention some essential prop- erties of the Rosetta machine translation system. For more extensive descriptions of this system I refer to Landsbergen(1987), Appelo & Landsber- gen(1986), Appelo, Fellinge...
