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)
The work reported here was carried out as part of the LRE Project 61-062, Towards a declarative theory of discourse and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft project SAMOS, Semantic analysis in a modular system. i Abstract In this paper we describe a reversible framework for discourse processing , a framework in which contextual constraints can be speciied(More)

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)
1 .Abstract 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 candidates will be detined in terms of compatibility and recency. Preferred antecedents are a subset of the possible antecedents, selected by the application of(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 deened. In this paper, we will introduce the anaphoric component of the Mimo formalism. It makes the deenition and translation of(More)
In the paper it is argued that for some linguistic phenomena, current discourse representation structures are insufficiently fine-grained, 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)

Location Edinburgh Content This deliverable discusses general representational and implementational issues for our discourse grammar developed in the ale system. The discourse grammar serves as the framework for the implementation of nominal and temporal anaphora, which are discussed in detail in the Deliverables D2.Nominal and D2.Temporal respectively. It(More)
