HPSG-Based Preprocessing for English-to-Japanese Translation
Hideki Isozaki, Katsuhito Sudoh, Hajime Tsukada, Kevin Duh
Article No.: 8
DOI: 10.1145/2334801.2334802

Japanese sentences have completely different word orders from corresponding English sentences. Typical phrase-based statistical machine translation (SMT) systems such as Moses search for the best word permutation within a given distance limit...

Adaptive Bayesian HMM for Fully Unsupervised Chinese Part-of-Speech Induction
Lidan Zhang, Kwop-Ping Chan
Article No.: 9
DOI: 10.1145/2334801.2334803

We propose an adaptive Bayesian hidden Markov model for fully unsupervised part-of-speech (POS) induction. The proposed model with its inference algorithm has two extensions to the first-order Bayesian HMM with Dirichlet priors. First our...

Stacking Model-Based Korean Prosodic Phrasing Using Speaker Variability Reduction and Linguistic Feature Engineering
Jinsik Lee, Sungjin Lee, Jonghoon Lee, Byeongchang Kim, Gary Geunbae Lee
Article No.: 10
DOI: 10.1145/2334801.2334804

This article presents a prosodic phrasing model for a general purpose Korean speech synthesis system. To reflect the factors affecting prosodic phrasing in the model, linguistically motivated machine-learning features were investigated. These...

Cross-Language Latent Relational Search between Japanese and English Languages Using a Web Corpus
Nguyen Tuan Duc, Danushka Bollegala, Mitsuru Ishizuka
Article No.: 11
DOI: 10.1145/2334801.2334805

Latent relational search is a novel entity retrieval paradigm based on the proportional analogy between two entity pairs. Given a latent relational search query {(Japan, Tokyo), (France, ?)}, a latent relational search engine is expected to...
