This paper describes a method for finding struc- rural matching between parallel sentences of two languages, (such as Japanese and English). Par- allel sentences are analyzed based on unification grammars, and structural matching is performed by making use of a similarity measure of word pairs in the two languages. Syntactic ambiguities are re- solved simultaneously in the matching process. The results serve as a. useful source for extracting lin- guistic a.nd lexical knowledge.
