The translation of English text into American Sign Language ( ASL) animation tests the limits of traditional machine translation (MT) approaches. The generation of spatially complex ASL phenomena c alled “classifier predicates” motivates a new representa tio for ASL based on virtual reality modeling software, and previ ous linguistic research provides constraints on the design of a English-toClassifier-Predicate translation process operating on this representation. This translation design can… CONTINUE READING
