This study presents a method to automat- ically acquire paraphrases using bilingual corpora, which utilizes the bilingual de- pendency relations obtained by projecting a monolingual dependency parse onto the other language sentence based on statisti- cal alignment techniques.

Also, we provide an advanced method to acquire generalized translation knowl- edge using the extracted paraphrases. We applied the method to acquire the gener- alized translation knowledge for Korean- English translation. Through experiments with parallel corpora of a Korean and En- ...
