English citations of catataxis

  • 1956, A F Parker-Rhodes, An electronic computer program for translating Chinese into English, in Mechanical Translation:
    The required information is supplied in the source text in the form of a simply-ordered series of symbols. [] The method of catataxis which I have worked out is of the algorithmic type.
  • 1991, R L Sanz, The limits of tanslation: the untranslatable, in Actas de las II Jornadas de Lengua y Literatura ...:

    (4) Subject ↔ Verb → Object
