We discuss some of the practical issues that arise from decoding with general synchronous context-free grammars. We examine problems caused by unary rules and we also examine how virtual nonterminals resulting from bina- rization can best be handled. We also inves- tigate adding more flexibility to synchronous context-free grammars by adding glue rules and phrases.
