Title: Extended Finite State Models of Language
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=052163198X
Series Title: Studies in Natural Language Processing
Description:

This volume and the accompanying CD-ROM cover the whole breadth of
contemporary finite state language modeling, from the mathematical
foundations to developing and debugging specific grammars. In addition to
applications developed in the broad frameworks of the Xerox regular
expression calculus or the AT&T/Bell Labs system of weighted transducers,
finite state methods are shown to be useful in constraint-based or
TAG-based systems, for machine translation, for information extraction, and
for discourse analysis. The CD includes source code, documentation, and
executables for several systems, including a faithful reconstruction of the
very first finite state parser from 1959, high performance finite state
toolkits, and a strikingly simple implementation of the basic ideas in
hidden Markov modeling. The book is intended for students, software
engineers, and researchers working in the area of natural language
processing or computational linguistics.
