Collocations and anaphora resolution in machine translation

Abstract/Résumé: Collocation identification and anaphora resolution are widely recognized as major issues for natural language processing, and particularly for machine translation. An abundant literature has been dedicated to each of those issues, but to the best of our knowledge their intersection domain – collocations in which the base term has been pronominalized – has hardly been treated. This paper intends to be a modest contribution towards filling this gap, focusing on the translation from English to French of collocations of the type verb-direct object, with and without pronominalization of the complement.
