Generating Confusion Sets for Context-Sensitive Error Correction
In this paper, we consider the problem of generating candidate corrections for the task of correcting errors in text. We focus on the task of correcting errors in preposition usag...

Facilitating Translation Using Source Language Paraphrase Lattices
For resource-limited language pairs, coverage of the test set by the parallel corpus is an important factor that affects translation quality in two respects: 1) out of vocabulary ...

Soft Syntactic Constraints for Hierarchical Phrase-Based Translation Using Latent Syntactic Distributions
In this paper, we present a novel approach to enhance hierarchical phrase-based machine translation systems with linguistically motivated syntactic features. Rather than directly ...

Automatic Evaluation of Translation Quality for Distant Language Pairs
Automatic evaluation of Machine Translation (MT) quality is essential to developing highquality MT systems. Various evaluation metrics have been proposed, and BLEU is now used as ...

Dual Decomposition for Parsing with Non-Projective Head Automata
This paper introduces algorithms for nonprojective parsing based on dual decomposition. We focus on parsing algorithms for nonprojective head automata, a generalization of head-au...

Effects of Empty Categories on Machine Translation
We examine effects that empty categories have on machine translation. Empty categories are elements in parse trees that lack corresponding overt surface forms (words) such as drop...

Efficient Incremental Decoding for Tree-to-String Translation
Syntax-based translation models should in principle be efficient with polynomially-sized search space, but in practice they are often embarassingly slow, partly due to the cost of...
