Paper: Translation By Structural Correspondences

ACL ID E89-1037
Title Translation By Structural Correspondences
Venue Annual Meeting of The European Chapter of The Association of Computational Linguistics
Session Main Conference
Year 1989

We sketch and illustrate an approach to machine translation that exploits the potential of simultaneous correspondences between separate levels of linguistic representation, as formalized in the LFG notion of codescriptions. The approach is illustrated with examples from English, German and French where the source and the target language sentence show noteworthy differences in linguistic analysis.
