Combining Machine Learning and rule-based approaches in Spanish and Japanese sentence realizatio

Maite Melero, Takako Aikawa, and Lee Schwartz

Abstract

In this paper we describe two parallel experiments on the integration of machine learning (ML) methods into the Spanish and Japanese rule-based sentence realization modules developed at Microsoft Research. The paper explores the use of decision trees (DT) for the lexical selection of the copula in Spanish and the insertion of a locative postposition in Japanese. We show that it is possible to machine-learn the contexts for these two non-trivial linguistic phenomena with high accuracy.
