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.

Book Information

   

Title: Natural Language Processing for Online Applications
Subtitle: Text retrieval, extraction and categorization
Written By: Isabelle Moulinier
Series Title: Natural Language Processing 5
Description:

Note: This is the second edition of a previously announced book.

This text covers the technologies of document retrieval, information
extraction, and text categorization in a way which highlights commonalities
in terms of both general principles and practical concerns. It assumes some
mathematical background on the part of the reader, but the chapters
typically begin with a non-mathematical account of the key issues. Current
research topics are covered only to the extent that they are informing
current applications; detailed coverage of longer term research and more
theoretical treatments should be sought elsewhere. There are many pointers
at the ends of the chapters that the reader can follow to explore the
literature. However, the book does maintain a strong emphasis on evaluation
in every chapter both in terms of methodology and the results of controlled
experimentation.
