Title:Syntax-Based MT Evaluation
Duration:October 1st 2006 - March 31st 2008
Funded by:Microsoft Ireland
People:Karolina Owczarzak, Josef van Genabith, Andy Way
Description:The Syntax-Based MT Evaluation project centres around developing an MT automatic evaluation method based on LFG dependency triples, which describe the internal structure of the sentence and not only its surface form. This will allow the comparison of the translation with the reference text on the structural level, and, coupled with a lexical and low-level syntactic paraphrasing, is likely to provide a more accurate MT quality evaluation than the current, string-based techniques.
