  title={A Discriminative Model for Tree-to-Tree Translation},

This paper proposes a statistical, treeto-tree model for producing translations. Two main contributions are as follows: (1) a method for the extraction of syntactic structures with alignment information from a parallel corpus of translations, and (2) use of a discriminative, featurebased model for prediction of these targetlanguage syntactic structures—which we call aligned extended projections , or AEPs. An evaluation of the method on translation from German to English shows similar… CONTINUE READING
