Abstract: This paper presents a Function Word centered, Syntax-based (FWS) solution to address phrase ordering in the context of statistical machine translation (SMT). Motivated by the observation that function words often encode grammatical relationship among phrases within a sentence, we propose a probabilistic synchronous grammar to model the ordering of function words and their left and right arguments. We improve phrase ordering performance by lexicalizing the resulting rules in a small number of cases corresponding to function words. The experiments show that the FWS approach consistently outperforms the baseline system in ordering function words' arguments and improving translation quality in both perfect and noisy word alignment scenarios. © 2007 Association for Computational Linguistics.
