Extended Finite State Models of Language
Edited by Andras Kornai, BBN Technologies, Cambridge, MA

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 book is
intended for students, software engineers, and researchers working in
the area of natural language processing or computational linguistics.
