RESEARCH IN GERMAN-ENGLISH MECHANICAL TRANSLATION.
LEHMANN, W.P.; TOSH, L.W.
UNDER CONTRACT WITH THE AIR FORCE, THE LINGUISTICS RESEARCH CENTER OF THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS CONDUCTED A RESEARCH PROJECT DESIGNED TO DEVELOP A GERMAN-ENGLISH SYNTACTIC TRANSLATION SYSTEM FOR SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNICAL TEXTS. MORE SPECIFICALLY, THE OBJECTIVES WERE TO (1) WRITE A GERMAN-ENGLISH TRANSFER GRAMMAR THAT WOULD LINK THE LINGUISTIC DESCRIPTIONS OF SOURCE AND TARGET LANGUAGES INVOLVED, AND (2) GIVE LINGUISTIC DESCRIPTIONS OF BOTH LANGUAGES THAT WOULD GENERATE MACHINE TRANSLATIONS OF GERMAN TEXTS. WITHIN A TRANSFORMATIONAL FRAMEWORK FOR INTERLINGUAL TRANSFER CODING, THE LANGUAGE TRANSLATION SYSTEM (LTS) ANALYZED TEXTS OF 500,000 GERMAN WORDS AND ONE MILLION ENGLISH WORDS. THE ANALYSIS YIELDED A DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF GERMAN SYNTAX WITH REGARD TO CERTAIN TYPES OF NOUN AND VERB PHRASES BOTH IN THE MONOLINGUAL AND INTERLINGUAL MODES. FOUR TRANSLATION RUNS WERE MADE, THE FIRST TWO ON A LEXICAL LEVEL AND THE LAST TWO ON MORPHOLOGY AND NP (NOUN PHRASE) STRUCTURES. (FB)
