Number Discrepancies

This problem is generated by the discrepancy between words of different languages that express the same concept. These words can be referred to a singular pronoun in the source language and to a plural pronoun in the target language. In order to take into account number discrepancies in the translation of the pronoun into English or Spanish, a set of morphological (number) rules is constructed. The lefthand side of the number rule contains the interlingua representation of the pronoun, whereas the righthand side contains the pronoun in the target language.
