We present an integrated phrase segmentation/alignment algorithm (ISA) for statistical machine translation. Without the need of building an initial word-to-word alignment or initially segmenting the monolingual text into phrases as other methods do, this algorithm segments the sentences into phrases and finds their alignments simultaneously. For each sentence pair, ISA builds a two-dimensional matrix to represent a sentence pair where the value of each cell corresponds to the point-wise mutual… CONTINUE READING
