Non-Projective Parsing for Statistical Machine Translation

  title={Non-Projective Parsing for Statistical Machine Translation},
  author={Xavier Carreras and Michael Collins},
We describe a novel approach for syntaxbased statistical MT, which builds on a variant of tree adjoining grammar (TAG). Inspired by work in discriminative dependency parsing, the key idea in our approach is to allow highly flexible reordering operations during parsing, in combination with a discriminative model that can condition on rich features of the sourcelanguage string. Experiments on translation from German to English show improvements over phrase-based systems, both in terms of BLEU… CONTINUE READING
