Title What's In A Translation Rule?
Venue Human Language Technologies
Session Main Conference
Year 2004

We propose a theory that gives formal seman- tics to word-level alignments defined over par- allel corpora. We use our theory to introduce a linear algorithm that can be used to derive from word-aligned, parallel corpora the minimal set of syntactically motivated transformation rules that explain human translation data.
