    1. Method and system for natural language translation

      The present invention is a system for translating text from a first source language into a second target language. The system assigns probabilities or scores to various target-language translations and then displays or makes otherwise available the highest scoring translations. The source text is first transduced into one or more intermediate structural representations. From these intermediate source structures a set of intermediate target-structure hypotheses is generated. These hypotheses are scored by two different models: a language model which assigns a probability or score to an intermediate target structure, and a translation model which assigns a probability or score to the ...

    2. Multimodal natural language interface for cross-application tasks

      A multimodal natural language interface interprets user requests combining natural language input from the user with information selected from a current application and sends the request in the proper form to an appropriate auxiliary application for processing. The multimodal natural language interface enables users to combine natural language (spoken, typed or handwritten) input selected by any standard means from an application the user is running (the current application) to perform a task in another application (the auxiliary application) without either leaving the current application, opening new windows, etc., or determining in advance of running the current application what actions are ...

    4. Method and device for parsing and analyzing natural language sentences and text

      A program is provided for organizing a natural language, such as English, into binary units of two basic elements, Nounness and Verbness, which combine in two idea word patterns, called Primary Image and Conditional Image, and two Detail word patterns, called Process Detail and Background Detail. These two basic elements, Nounness and Verbness, function binarily within the program, either in combination for the two Image word patterns or separately for the two Detail word patterns. All word terns, except the verb-in-tense in the two Image word patterns, function binarily within the program in one of two positions: as Nounness, called ...

    5. Machine translation system utilizing bilingual equivalence statements

      A machine translation system which operates by analyzing a source text to deduce information about the usage and meaning of the words of a source language text as they occur in context. This information is passed to an equivalencing module, which determines a set of equivalent target language words from which may be constructed a target language text by a generation module. The generation module has internal structure, including a tree construction module and a constraint checking module. The two modules operate in parallel. The tree constructor builds legal target language structures from which the translated text may be extracted ...

    9. Integrated authoring and translation system

      The present invention is a system of integrated, computer-based processes for monolingual information development and multilingual translation. An interactive text editor enforces lexical and grammatical constraints on a natural language subset used by the authors to create their text, which they help disambiguate to ensure translatability. The resulting translatable source language text undergoes machine translation into any one of a set of target languages, without the translated text requiring any postediting.

    11. Document information retrieval using global word co-occurrence patterns

      A method and apparatus accesses relevant documents based on a query. A thesaurus of word vectors is formed for the words in the corpus of documents. The word vectors represent global lexical co-occurrence patterns and relationships between word neighbors. Document vectors, which are formed from the combination of word vectors, are in the same multi-dimensional space as the word vectors. A singular value decomposition is used to reduce the dimensionality of the document vectors. A query vector is formed from the combination of word vectors associated with the words in the query. The query vector and document vectors are compared ...

    16. Artificial intelligence language program

      A sentence entered by a user is translated into Esperanto. The translated sentence is then parsed and a series of propositions are generated. Each proposition consist of a subject, verb, and an optional object such as an adjective, noun, or prepositional phrase, if present. A series of propositional databases are used to relate the various propositions as to their function within the sentence, thereby mapping the thought of the sentence in a form recognizable by a machine.

    18. Method and apparatus for efficient morphological text analysis using a high-level language for compact specification of inflectional paradigms

      A language syntax defines statement forms for statements that describe the inflectional morphology of the natural language. A set of language statements that follow the language syntax to describe the inflectional morphology of the natural language is accepted as input into to a computer. Rule statements define a set of morpho-syntactic features corresponding to grammatical distinctions within the parts of speech categories in the natural language and define a set of inflectional morphological paradigms. The inflectional morphological paradigms include form rule statements to describe the construction of word forms and associate with each construction pre-selected morpho-syntactic features.

    20. Word disambiguation apparatus and methods

      Apparatus and methods for determining whether a word/sense pair is proper for a context. Wide contexts (100 words) are employed for both training and testing, and testing is done by adding the weights of vocabulary words from the context. The weights are determined by Bayesian techniques which interpolate between the probability of occurrence of a vocabulary word in a conditional sample of the training text and the probability of its occurrence in the entire training text. A further improvement in testing takes advantage of the fact that a word is generally used in only a single sense in a ...
