Syntactic word reordering is essential for translations across different grammar structures between syntactically distant languagepairs. In this paper, we propose to embed local and non-local word reordering decisions in a synchronous context free grammar, and leverages the grammar in a chartbased decoder. Local word-reordering is effectively encoded in Hiero-like rules; whereas non-local word-reordering, which allows for long-range movements of syntactic chunks, is represented in tree-based… CONTINUE READING
