Phrase Linguistic Classification and Generalization for Improving Statistical Machine Translation

By Adrià De Gispert


In this paper a method to incorporate linguistic information regarding single-word and compound verbs is proposed, as a first step towards an SMT model based on linguistically-classified phrases. By substituting these verb structures by the base form of the head verb, we achieve a better statistical word alignment performance, and are able to better estimate the translation model and generalize to unseen verb forms during translation. Preliminary experiments for the English- Spanish language pair are performed, and future research lines are detailed
