Statistical Machine Translation for Depassivizing German Part-of-speech Sequences

Benjamin Gottesman


Abstract
We aim to use statistical machine translation technology to correct grammar errors and style issues in monolingual text. Here, as a feasibility test, we focus on depassivization in German and we abstract from surface forms to parts of speech. Our results are not yet satisfactory but yield useful insights into directions for improvement.
