Development of German-English Machine Translation System.
Lehmann, Winfred P.; Stachowitz, Rolf A.
The report presents a progress in theoretical linguistics, descriptive linguistics, lexicography, and systems design in the development of a German-English Machine Translation System. Work in the theoretical group concentrated on intrasentenial disambiguation and on improving certain parts of the system to achieve greater economy in processing. The linguistic group was engaged in correcting and updating the existing German and English lexical data bases by assigning syntactic and semantic selection restrictions to lexical items. Work in the system group concentrated on the reduction of the size of the existing linguistics research system lexical data base without information loss, on the conversion of this data base to the linguistics research system script format, on the construction of supporting programs to expedite and facilitate the updating of the linguistics research system word lists, and on the construction of part of the linguistics research system grammar maintenance and systems programs.
