Multilingual Lexical Representation

Ann Copestake and Antonio Sanfilippo

The approach to multilingual lexical representation developed as part of the ACQUILEX Lexical Knowledge Base (LKB) is discussed with specific reference to complex translation equivalence. The treatment described provides a lexicalist account of translation mismatches in terms of translation links which capture cross-linguistic generalizations across sets of semantically related lexical items, and can be readily integrated with several transfer-based MT systems.
