The MiMo2 translation system combines several leading ideas in the areas of linguistics, computation and translation. In the area of translation we follow the basic ideas of Landsbergen [26] by assuming that translation is symmetric; and combine these ideas with the advantages of a transfer approach. Computationally the system focuses on computability and(More)

Theoretical research in the area of machine translation usually involves the search for and creation of an appropriate formalism. An important issue in this respect is the way in which the compositionality of translation is to be defined. In this paper, we will introduce the anaphoric component of the Mimo formalism. It makes the definition and translation(More)
This paper reports on a model that serves anaphora resolution. A distinction will be made between possible antecedents and preferred an.tecedents. The set of linguistically possible can-didates will be detined in terms of compatibili ty and recency. Preferred antecedents are a subset of the possible antecedents, selected by the application of(More)
In this paper we describe a reversible framework for discourse processing, a framework in which contextual constraints can be speci ed independently of the processing algorithm. We take as a starting point Scha and Polanyi's discourse grammar ([Scha/Polanyi 1988]) which is in essence a uni cation based grammar extended with arbitrary relations. Although(More)
In the paper it is argued that for some linguistic phenomena, current discourse representation structures are insufficiently finegrained, both from the perspective of serving as representation in NLP and from a truth conditional perspective. One such semantic phenomenon is uniqueness. It is demonstrated that certain elements are forced to have a unique(More)
Programme Committee received a large number of submissions (5 page extended abstracts) from all over the world. The general quality of the submissions was high. Out of a total of 229 submissions, 47 were accepted, including 7 reserve papers. Every abstract submitted was reviewed by one member of the Programme Committee and three referees (see pages v and(More)
