Title: Dependency-based machine translation and parallel parsing without the projectivity and edge-factoring assumptions
A white paper
Author: Buch-Kromann, Matthias
Abstract: In this white paper, we review the theoretical evidence about the computational efficiency of dependency parsing and machine translation without the widely used, but linguistically questionable assumptions about projectivity and edge-factoring. On the basis of the heuristic local optimality parser proposed by (Buch-Kromann, 2006), we propose a common architecture for monolingual parsing, parallel parsing, and translation that does not make these assumptions. Finally, we describe the elementary repair operations in the model, and argue that the model is potentially interesting as a model of human translation.
