Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Inductive Dependency Parsing
Written By: Joakim Nivre
URL: http://www.springer.com/1-4020-4888-2
Series Title: Text, Speech and Language Technology
Description:

This book provides an in-depth description of the framework of inductive
dependency parsing, a methodology for robust and efficient syntactic
analysis of unrestricted natural language text. This methodology is based
on two essential components: dependency-based syntactic representations and
a data-driven approach to syntactic parsing. More precisely, it is based on
a deterministic parsing algorithm in combination with inductive machine
learning to predict the next parser action.

The book includes a theoretical analysis of all central models and
algorithms, as well as a thorough empirical evaluation of memory-based
dependency parsing, using data from Swedish and English. Offering the
reader a one-stop reference to dependency-based parsing of natural
language, it is intended for researchers and system developers in the
language technology field, and is also suited for graduate or advanced
undergraduate education.
