Training a Parser for Machine Translation Reordering
We propose a simple training regime that can improve the extrinsic performance of a parser, given only a corpus of sentences and a way to automatically evaluate the extrinsic qual...

Adjoining Tree-to-String Translation
We introduce synchronous tree adjoining grammars (TAG) into tree-to-string translation, which converts a source tree to a target string. Without reconstructing TAG derivations exp...

A Discriminative Latent Variable-Based "DE" Classifier for Chinese-English SMT
Syntactic reordering on the source-side is an effective way of handling word order differences. The (DE) construction is a flexible and ubiquitous syntactic structure in Chinese w...

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 ...
