A relational approach to translation

  title={A relational approach to translation},
  author={R{\'e}mi Zajac},
In this paper, we show how the notion of "co-description" in LFG used for specifying a translation correspondence in a declarative way [Kaplan et al. 89] can be reformulated in a relational framework gaining modularity and reversibility of grammars. We illustrate this approach with a transfer example taken from [Kaplan et al. 89] using a logic formalism which has feature terms as basic data structures. This formalism is based on term rewriting and it integrates a powerful typing mechanism. In… CONTINUE READING
