Abstract

This paper reports on the use of predictive techniques to translate Blissymbol sentences into grammatically correct English. Evaluations of this approach show that it is possible to translate short sentences by analysing the likelihood of word tri-gram occurrences in English source texts. The translation system is designed to be a component of a Blissymbol word processor which allows users to convert Blissymbol sentences into grammatically correct English.
