Abstract : The report documents results of a 13-month effort in Chinese-English machine translation R and D. Main emphasis was placed on design of automatic lookup system for segmentation of Chinese test into units of meaning, and design of automatic syntactic analysis system for recognition of Chinese sentence structure. The following tasks were progressing concurrently: further compilation of lexical data with refined grammar codes, and continuing sophistication of rules for automatic syntactic analysis. Completion of Syntactic Analysis System (SAS) and associated subroutines constitutes a major achievement. Continuation phase will be devoted mainly to interlingual transfer problem and synthesis in English, culminating in design of a prototype system for Chinese-English machine translation. (Author)
