This paper puts forward a text-circled semantic schema by which a special flow chart of cognitive alteration and processing breakdown in Machine Translation (MT) system is clearly presented. Based on the theoretical analysis of textual Garden Path Phenomenon (GPP), we devise a formula to measure the dramatically changeable value of textual GPP. The data-provided evidence in A Farewell to Arms shows the textual GPP can motivate the development of plots and adjust the analyst's original horizon of expectation. Despite the limitation of incompatible, subjective and sample-restricted features involved in the theoretical framework and formula, this computational analysis makes MT system pay more attention to text-circled cognitive alteration rather than only highlight the lexical or syntactic translation, and as a result aims to make the effectiveness of machine translation of the literary text improved.
