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: Apprentissage automatique de la morphologie
Subtitle: Le cas des structures racine-schème
Written By: Aris Xanthos

Series Title: Sciences pour la Communication. Vol. 88
Description:

Quelle est la quantité d'information nécessaire a priori pour découvrir la
structure d'une langue ? Le paradigme de l'apprentissage automatique porte
sur la question un éclairage qui peut surprendre. Cet ouvrage propose l'une
des premières introductions en français à ce champ de recherche. Il en
illustre la démarche en l'appliquant à deux problèmes liés en phonologie et
en morphologie : le classement des phonèmes en consonnes et voyelles et la
description du mode de formation du mot qui prévaut dans les langues comme
l'arabe ou l'hébreu. Sur un mode didactique, l'ouvrage présente les
principales approches développées dans ce domaine, avec un accent
particulier sur les méthodes et modèles basés sur la théorie des
probabilités et la théorie de l'information. Plus généralement, il montre
que des structures linguistiques complexes peuvent être découvertes en ne
faisant qu'un minimum d'hypothèses a priori sur les phénomènes considérés.
