Expanding the structural transfer from Amis to English


  • Structural Transfer Rules:
  1. adding the det 'the' before nom + n tags
  2. make the VSO -> SVO transfer work with compound objects
  3. add an adjective reordering rule
  4. make the VSO -> SVO transfer work for more sentences
  • Lexical selection rule for the word 'aku' to translate to 'my' versus 'I'
  • To accomplish the previous, add a dictionary entry for the 'aku' -> 'my' stransfer
  • clean up/ add names to reduce '#'d words


  • WER: 106 -> 102
  • PER: 95 -> 93
