Knowledge Required for Avoiding Lexical Errors at Machine Translation
Authors: Yukiko Sasaki Alam
Abstract:This research aims at finding out the causes that led to wrong lexical selections in machine translation (MT) rather than categorizing lexical errors, which has been a main practice in error analysis. By manually examining and analyzing lexical errors outputted by a MT system, it suggests what knowledge would help the system reduce lexical errors.
