Semantic Message Detection for Machine Translation, Using an Interlingua

Classics

In my view, the present "critical situation" in M.T., is not due tothe fact that genuine Mechanical Translation is inherently impossible, asBar-Hillel thinks, but to the fact that the mechanizable techniques atpresent being used to analyse language are not powerful enough to detectthe message, or argument, of any particular text.Other papers from this conference online.
