In this paper, we focus on alignment of Czech and English tectogrammatical dependency trees. The alignment of deep syntactic dependency trees can be used for training transfer models for machine translation systems based on analysis-transfer-synthesis architecture. The results of our experiments show that shifting the alignment task from the word layer to the tectogrammatical layer both (a) increases the interannotator agreement on the task and (b) allows to construct a featurebased algorithm… CONTINUE READING
