LANGUAGE AND SPEECH PROCESSING:


 	CORPUS-BASED METHODS IN LANGUAGE AND SPEECH PROCESSING
 	******************************************************

 	 edited by Steve Young and Gerrit Bloothooft

 --------------------------------------------
 		the FIRST ELSNET book, available NOW!!
 	 --------------------------------------------

An in-depth introduction to corpus-based methods by excellent authors
through chapters describing statistical modeling techniques for
language and speech, the use of Hidden Markov Models in continuous
speech recognition, the development of dialogue systems,
part-of-speech tagging and partial parsing, data-oriented parsing and
n-gram language modeling.

The book attempts to give both a clear overview of the main
technologies used in language and speech processing, along with
sufficient mathematics to understand the underlying principles. The
book will give newcomers a solid introduction to the field and it will
give existing practitioners a concise review of the principle
technologies used in state-of-the-art language and speech processing
systems.
