Stochastic Attribute-Value Grammars
by Rob Malouf, Miles Osborne
Publisher: ESSLLI 2001
Number of pages: 159
This one-week course will provide an introduction to the maximum entropy principle and the construction of maximum entropy models for natural language processing. Through a combination of lectures and, as local computing facilities permit, hands-on lab exercises, students will investigate the implementation of maximum entropy models for attribute-value grammars, including such topics as ambiguity identification, feature selection, and model training and evaluation.

This book presents a series of experiments in which two robots try to solve the symbol grounding problem. The experiments are based on the language game paradigm, and involve real mobile robots that are able to develop a grounded lexicon ...

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.

We will go into many of the techniques that so-called computational linguists use to analyze the structure of human language, and transform it into a form that computers work with. We chose Haskell as the main programming language for this book.
