by Igor Boshakov, Alexander Gelbukh
Number of pages: 198
The contents of the book are based on the course on computational linguistics that has been delivered by the authors since 1997 at the Center for Computing Research, National Polytechnic Institute, Mexico City. The book focuses on the basic set of ideas and facts from the fundamental science necessary for the creation of intelligent language processing tools, without going deeply into the details of specific algorithms or toy systems.

This text provides an introduction to the maximum entropy principle and the construction of maximum entropy models for natural language processing. We investigate the implementation of maximum entropy models for attribute-value grammars.

A concise introduction to logic programming and the logic-programming language Prolog both as vehicles for understanding elementary computational linguistics and as tools for implementing the basic components of natural-language-processing systems.

What kind of computational device could use a system like a human language? This text explores the computational properties of devices that could compute morphological and syntactic analyses, and recognize semantic relations among sentences.
