Abstract: We employ Maximum Entropy model to conduct sub-tree alignment between bilingual phrasal structure trees. Various lexical and structural knowledge is explored to measure the syntactic similarity across Chinese-English bilingual tree pairs. In the experiment, we evaluate the sub-tree alignment using both gold standard tree bank and the automatically parsed corpus with manually annotated sub-tree alignment. Compared with a heuristic similarity based method, the proposed method significantly improves the performance with only limited sub-tree aligned data. To examine its effectiveness for multilingual applications, we further attempt different approaches to apply the sub-tree alignment in both phrase and syntax based SMT systems. We then compare the performance with that of the widely used word alignment. Experimental results on benchmark data show that sub-tree alignment benefits both systems by relaxing the constraint of the word alignment.
