Logical Forms & Alignment 2019


Notes:

Logical forms (LFs) are graph structures that describe labeled dependencies among content words. The logical form alignment algorithm first establishes tentative lexical correspondences between nodes in the source and target LFs using translation pairs from a bilingual lexicon.
