A Maximum Entropy Approach to Natural Language Processing
by A. L. Berger, S. A. Della Pietra, V. J. Della Pietra
Publisher: Association for Computational Linguistics 1996
Number of pages: 36
The authors describe a method for statistical modeling based on maximum entropy. They present a maximum-likelihood approach for automatically constructing maximum entropy models and describe how to implement this approach efficiently, using as examples several problems in natural language processing.

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.
by Roger Levy - University of California, San Diego
A book on the topic of using probabilistic models in scientific work on language ranging from experimental data analysis to corpus work to cognitive modeling. The intended audience is graduate students in linguistics, psychology and computer science.
by Igor Boshakov, Alexander Gelbukh
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.
by Shuly Wintner - ESSLLI
This text is a mild introduction to Formal Language Theory for students with little or no background in formal systems. The motivation is Natural Language Processing, and the presentation is geared towards NLP applications, with extensive examples.
