Syntactic and Semantic Transfer with F-Structures
Michael Dorna, Anette Frank, Josef Van Genabith, Martin Emele
We present two approaches for syntactic and semantic transfer based on LFG f-structures and compare the
results with existing co-description and restriction operator based approaches, focusing on aspects of
ambiguity preserving transfer, complex cases of syntactic structural mismatches as well as on modularity and
reusability. The two transfer approaches are interfaced with an existing, implemented transfer component
(Verbmobil), by translating f-structures into a term language, and by interfacing f-structure representations with
an existing semantic-based transfer approach, respectively.
