It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Inductive Dependency Parsing
Written By: Joakim Nivre
Series Title: Text, Speech and Language Technology

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.
