Notes on Computational Linguistics
by Edward Stabler
Publisher: UCLA 2003
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 entailment relations among sentences.

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.

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.

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.

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.
