Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Computer Processing of Sanskrit Nominal Inflections
Subtitle: Methods and Implementation
Written By: Subhash Chandra
Girish Nath Jha
Description:

"Computer Processing of Sanskrit Nominal Inflections: Methods and
Implementation" is the result of Research and Development (R&D) at the
Master of Philosophy (MPhil) level at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New
Delhi, India. The title of the dissertation was “Machine Recognition and
Morphological Analysis of Subanta-Padas.” The work, which is based on the
reverse engineering implementation of Panini’s Sanskrit Grammar, brings
together new and original studies in the area of computational linguistics,
language technology and natural language processing with reference to
parsing Sanskrit nominal inflections.

On the surface level, Panini has defined rules in a forward looking
generative fashion which makes reverse analysis necessary for parsing.
Since parsing inflections is the first basic step towards complete
analysis, the present work has relevance for any larger system that may
evolve in future.
