Semantic Analysis in Machine Translation.
Skorokhodko, E. F.
Edited trans. of Automation of Information Works and Problems of Mathematical Linguistics, n1 p29-44 1966 (Russia)
In many cases machine-translation does not produce satisfactory results within the framework of purely formal (morphological and syntaxic) analysis, particularly, in the case of syntaxic and lexical homonomy. An algorithm for syntaxic-semantic analysis is proposed, and its principles of operation are described. The syntaxico-semantic structure is established in the course of this analysis. A special syntaxic analysis is absent, the rules of syntax playing a subordinate part and being used to remove the homonomy. The language of the RX codes is proposed as the intermediary language. Many of the machine-translation rules required can be obtained on a computer. Partial automation of the development of rules can be achieved with the aid of existing algorithms. (Author)
