THE REALIS MODEL OF HUMAN INTERPRETERS AND ITS APPLICATION IN COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS

Gábor Alberti, Márton Károly, Judit Kleiber

Abstract

As we strive for sophisticated machine translation and reliable information extraction, we have launched a subproject pertaining to modelling human interpreters. The model is based on ReALIS, a new “post-Montagovian” discourse-semantic theory concerning the formal interpretation of sentences constituting coherent discourses, with a lifelong model of lexical, interpersonal and cultural / encyclopedic knowledge of interpreters in its center including their reciprocal knowledge on each other. After the introduction of ReALIS, we provide linguistic data in order to show that intelligent language processing requires a realistic model of human interpreters. Then we put down some principles of the implementation (in progress) and demonstrate how to apply our model in computational linguistics.
