Word-Level Alignment For Multilingual Resource Acquisition

By Adam Lopez, Michael Nossal, Rebecca Hwa and Philip Resnik

Abstract

We present a simple, one-pass word alignment algorithm for parallel text. Our algorithm utilizes synchronous parsing and takes advantage of existing syntactic annotations. In our experiments the performance of this model is comparable to more complicated iterative methods. We discuss the challenges and potential benefits of using this model to train syntactic parsers for new languages.
