Hello everyone!

My name is Alain Matthey and I am a computer scientist. I am
working as a research assistant in the Laboratory of Speech and
Language Processing of the University of Neuchatel (Switzerland).

The members of this laboratory are working now on a research
project which consists to develop a kind of spell and grammar
checker like Grammatik, IBM's Critique, Mac Proof, Hugo or Sans
fautes but for French native speakers who write in English.

In this project, I will have to implemant the "preprocessing step" which
consists to recognise and delimit the sentences and the words of a text.

How to find and delimit automatically sentences and words in any kind of
ASCII texts? That's the problem!!!

So I am looking for some informations (bibliography,
papers, etc.) about "preprocessing of ASCII texts".

For any more informations or for an answer, please contact me at
the address above:
