Subclassification of English Adjectives for French to English Machine Translation.
Flanagan, Mary A.
Georgetown Journal of Languages and Linguistics, v1 n3 p291-96 Sum 1990
Advances the hypothesis that, when translating French personal constructions involving an adjective and a verb infinitive into English, the property of the English adjective determines whether the verb will be translated as an infinitive or as a gerund. Alternatives for handling such translations in machine translation systems are explored. (five references) (JL)
