We describe MITRE’s two submissions to the RTE Challenge, intended to exemplify two different ends of the spectrum of possibilities. The first submission is a traditional system based on linguistic analysis and inference, while the second is inspired by alignment approaches from machine translation. We also describe our efforts to build our own entailment corpus. Finally, we discuss our investigations and reflections on the strengths and weaknesses of the evaluation itself.
