Abstract:
This thesis presents a system for translating spoken English into Mandarin, paying particular attention to the relationship between the phonologically marked emphatic/ contrastive focus in English and the lexical/syntactic focus constructions in Mandarin. This is based on the assumption that information carried by intonation in English may be expressed using lexical/syntactic devices in tone languages.
