Abstract

This paper concerns the resolution of lexical ambiguity in a machine translation environment. We describe the integration of principles of selection restrictions, Preference Semantics, and intelligent relaxation of constraints in handling lexical ambiguity. The approach differs from many previous MT systems in that it is more powerful than 'brute force' systems, while more realistic than systems that assume a large degree of coded encyclopedia information for 'full understanding.'
