Title:Shake-and-Bake Machine Translation
Date: 1992
Presented:To be presented at COLING-92, Nantes, France, July 1992
Abstract:A novel approach to Machine Translation (MT), called Shake-and-Bake, is presented, which exploits recent advances in Computational Linguistics in terms of the increased spread of lexicalist unification-based grammar theories. It is argued that it overcomes some difficulties encountered by transfer and interlingual methods. It offers a great modularity of the monolingual components, which can be written with independence of each other, using purely monolingual considerations. These are put into correspondence by means of a bilingual lexicon.
