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.

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

"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.
