Refinements of Phrase Based Models

Phrase-based models have refined in many ways. We discuss in detail reordering models, pruning and smoothing methods, and the inclusion of context features in separate sections elsewhere, and address here other refinements.

Phrase Based Model Refinement is the main subject of 27 publications.


Usually, the segmentation of the source is not modeled, or only a phrase count feature is used, but adding a source phrase segmentation model may be beneficial (Blackwood et al., 2008). When using automatically learned segmentation boundaries these may outperform linguistically motivated constituent boundaries (Xiong et al., 2010).
Models may allow word insertion to account for spurious function words (Xu, 2005), or allow for words to be dropped by translating them into the empty phrase (Li et al., 2008).
