The operations that can be performed by transfer rules are summarised here.

Add or remove words

Context-free removal

  • (eng) at the store → (kaz) дүкенде
    (eng) at<prp> a<det><def> store<n><sg> → (kaz) дүкен<n><loc>

TODO

Note that this goes hand-in-hand with the context-sensitive addition of a tag, which will need to happen before the words are removed.

Context-sensitive addition

  • (kaz) дүкенде → (eng) at the store
    (kaz) дүкен<n><loc> → (eng) at<prp> a<det><def> store<n><sg>

TODO

Note that this goes hand-in-hand with the context-free removal of a tag, which can happen at any point.

Rearranging word order

TODO: livres courts → short books

Note that this goes together with the context-free removal of a tag, which can happen at any point

TODO: short books → livres courts

Note that this goes together with the context-sensitive addition of a tag, which can happen at any point, but will be written differently depending on whether before or after this rule is applied

Changing tags

Simple context-free replacement

  • (kir) бийлечүбүз → (spa) bailabamos
    (kir) бийле<v><iv><pih><p1><pl> → (spa) baila<vblex><iv><pih><p1><pl>

TODO

Context-free removal

TODO: livres courts → short books

Note that this goes together with the rearranging of the words, which can happen at any time in relation to the tag removal.

Context-sensitive addition

E.g., for fixing agreement or concord.

TODO: short books → livres courts

Note that this goes together with the rearranging of the words, which can happen at any time in relation to the tag addition.
