Title: Linguistic Structure Prediction
Written By: Noah A. Smith‌
Edited By: Graeme Hirst

Description:

A major part of natural language processing now depends on the use of text
data to build linguistic analyzers. We consider statistical, computational
approaches to modeling linguistic structure. We seek to unify across many
approaches and many kinds of linguistic structures. Assuming a basic
understanding of natural language processing and/or machine learning, we seek
to bridge the gap between the two fields. Approaches to decoding (i.e., carrying
out linguistic structure prediction) and supervised and unsupervised learning of
models that predict discrete structures as outputs are the focus. We also
survey natural language processing problems to which these methods are being
applied, and we address related topics in probabilistic inference, optimization,
and experimental methodology.
