Abstract : The linguistic study for a developmental Chinese-English machine-aided translation resulted in the design of a basic linguistic processing system based on the Contextual Associative Method (CAM). This technique allows machine aided translation through the use of programmed contextual operations. The results of this research effort are presented and include: (1) explanation of the linguistic processing system; (2) morphological and syntactic analyses, and (3) English inflection analysis for Chinese to English machine aided translation. Illustrations showing step by step linguistic processing are included. Recommendations are presented for refinement and further development of the basic linguistic analysis. An explanation of symbols for linguistic rules listings of computer experimentation and listings of verb components in English output are appended.
