Title: Introducing Speech and Language Processing
Written By: John S. Coleman
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/9780521823654
Series Title: Cambridge Introductions to Language and Linguistics
Description:

This major new textbook provides a clearly-written, concise and accessible
introduction to speech and language processing. Assuming knowledge of only
the very basics of linguistics and written specifically for students with
no technical background, it is the perfect starting point for anyone
beginning to study the discipline. Students are introduced to topics such
as digital signal processing, speech analysis and synthesis, finite-state
machines, automatic speech recognition, parsing and probabilistic grammars,
and are shown from a very elementary level how to work with two programming
languages, C and Prolog. The accompanying CD-ROM contains all the software
described in the book, along with a C compiler, Prolog interpreter and
sound file editor, thus providing a self-contained, one-stop resource for
the learner. Setting a firm grounding in speech and language processing and
an invaluable foundation for further study, Introducing Speech and Language
Processing is set to become the leading introduction to the field.
