Series Title: Synthesis Lectures on Human Language Technologies
Description:

This book introduces Chinese language-processing issues and techniques to
readers who already have a basic background in natural language processing
(NLP). Since the major difference between Chinese and Western languages is
at the word level, the book primarily focuses on Chinese morphological
analysis and introduces the concept, structure, and interword semantics of
Chinese words.

The following topics are covered: a general introduction to Chinese NLP;
Chinese characters, morphemes, and words and the characteristics of Chinese
words that have to be considered in NLP applications; Chinese word
segmentation; unknown word detection; word meaning and Chinese linguistic
resources; interword semantics based on word collocation and NLP techniques
for collocation extraction.

Table of Contents:
Introduction / Words in Chinese / Challenges in Chinese Morphological
Processing / Chinese Word Segmentation / Unknown Word Identification / Word
Meaning / Chinese Collocations / Automatic Chinese Collocation Extraction /
Appendix / References / Author Biographies
