The Ancient Language, and the Dialect of Cornwall, with an Enlarged Glossary of Cornish Provincial Words

By Frederick W.P. Jago

Containing around 3,700 dialect words from both Cornish and English,, this glossary was published in 1882 by Frederick W. P. Jago (1817–92) in an effort to describe and preserve the dialect as it too declined and it is an invaluable record of a disappearing dialect and way of life.

Book Information

   

Title: Building Natural Language Generation Systems
Written By: Ehud Reiter
Robert Dale
Series Title: Studies in Natural Language Processing
Description:

This book explains how to build Natural Language Generation (NLG) systems -
computer software systems which use techniques from artificial intelligence
and computational linguistics to automatically generate understandable
texts in English or other human languages, either in isolation or as part
of multimedia documents, Web pages, and speech output systems. Typically
starting from some non-linguistic representation of information as input,
NLG systems use knowledge about language and the application domain to
automatically produce documents, reports, explanations, help messages, and
other kinds of texts. The book covers the algorithms and representations
needed to perform the core tasks of document planning, microplanning, and
surface realization, using a case study to show how these components fit
together. It also discusses engineering issues such as system architecture,
requirements analysis, and the integration of text generation into
multimedia and speech output systems.
