Using Machine Translation Evaluation Techniques to Determine Sentence-level Semantic Equivalence

  title={Using Machine Translation Evaluation Techniques to Determine Sentence-level Semantic Equivalence},
  author={Andrew M. Finch and Young-Sook Hwang and Eiichiro Sumita},
The task of machine translation (MT) evaluation is closely related to the task of sentence-level semantic equivalence classification. This paper investigates the utility of applying standard MT evaluation methods (BLEU, NIST, WER and PER) to building classifiers to predict semantic equivalence and entailment. We also introduce a novel classification method based on PER which leverages part of speech information of the words contributing to the word matches and non-matches in the sentence.
