Rule Learning – Overview Goal: learn transfer rules for a language pair where one language is resource-rich, the other is resource-poor Learning proceeds in three steps: 1.Flat Seed Generation: informed guessing of transfer rules 2.Compositionality: adding structure to rules, using previously learned rules 3.Seeded Version Space Learning: generalizing rules to make them scale to more unseen examples

S::S [det adv adj n aux neg v det n] [det adv adj n v det n neg vpart] (;;alignments: (x1:y1)(x2::y2)(x3::y3)(x4::y4)(x6::y8)(x7::y5)(x7::y9)(x8::y6)(x9::y7)) ;;constraints: ((x1 def) = *+) ((x4 agr) = *3-sing) ((x5 tense) = *past) …. ((y1 def) = *+) ((y3 case) = *nom) ((y4 agr) = *3-sing) …. ) The highly qualified applicant did not accept the offer. Der äußerst qualifizierte Bewerber nahm das Angebot nicht an.
