We report in this paper our work on accurately generating case markers and sufﬁxes in English-to-Hindi SMT. Hindi is a relatively free word-order language, and makes use of a comparatively richer set of case markers and morphological sufﬁxes for correct meaning representation. From our experience of large-scale English-Hindi MT, we are convinced that ﬂuency and ﬁdelity in the Hindi output get an order of magnitude facelift if accurate case markers and sufﬁxes are produced.

Many applications of natural language processing technologies involve analyzing texts that concern the psychological states and processes of people, including their beliefs, goals, predictions, explanations, and plans. In this paper, we describe our efforts to create a robust, large-scale lexical-semantic resource for the recognition and classification of expressions of commonsense psychology in English Text.
Informal and formal (“T/V”) address in dialogue is not distinguished overtly in modern English, e.g. by pronoun choice like in many other languages such as French (“tu”/“vous”). Our study investigates the status of the T/V distinction in English literary texts. Our main ﬁndings are: (a) human raters can label monolingual English utterances as T or V fairly well, given sufﬁcient context; (b), a bilingual corpus can be exploited to induce a supervised classiﬁer for T/V without human annotation.
Word alignment using recency-vector based approach has recently become popular. One major advantage of these techniques is that unlike other approaches they perform well even if the size of the parallel corpora is small. This makes these algorithms worth-studying for languages where resources are scarce. In this work we studied the performance of two very popular recency-vector based approaches, proposed in (Fung and McKeown, 1994) and (Somers, 1998), respectively, for word alignment in English-Hindi parallel corpus.

The first English grammar, Pamphlet for Grammar by William Bullokar, written with the seeming goal of demonstrating that English was quite as rule-bound as Latin, was published in 1586. Bullokar's grammar was faithfully modeled on William Lily's Latin grammar, Rudimenta Grammatices (1534). Lily's grammar was being used in schools in England at that time, having been "prescribed" for them in 1542 by Henry VIII.
