ACL ID P91-1021
Title Translation By Quasi Logical Form Transfer
Venue Annual Meeting of the Association of Computational Linguistics
Session Main Conference
Year 1991

The paper describes work on applying a gen- eral purpose natural language processing system to transfer-based interactive translation. Trans- fer takes place at the level of Quasi Logical Form (QLF), a contextually sensitive logical form rep- resentation which is deep enough for dealing with cross-linguistic differences. Theoretical arguments and experimental results are presented to support the claim that this framework has good proper- ties in terms of modularity, compositionality, re- versibility and monotonicity.
