  5. 5. Word Alignment by Re-using Parallel Phrases

    University dissertation from Linköping : LIU-tryck

    Author : Maria Holmqvist; Lars Ahrenberg; Magnus Merkel; Jörg Tiedemann; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; computational linguistics; HUMANITIES and RELIGION Languages and linguistics Linguistic subjects Computational linguistics; HUMANIORA och RELIGIONSVETENSKAP Språkvetenskap Lingvistikämnen Datorlingvistik;

    Abstract : In this thesis we present the idea of using parallel phrases for word alignment. Each parallel phrase is extracted from a set of manual word alignments and contains a number of source and target words and their corresponding alignments. If a parallel phrase matches a new sentence pair, its word alignments can be applied to the new sentence. READ MORE
