In this book we address robustness issues at the speech recognition and
natural language parsing levels, with a focus on feature extraction and
noise robust recognition, adaptive systems, language modeling, parsing, and
natural language understanding. This book attempts to give a clear overview
of the main technologies used in language and speech processing, along with
an extensive bibliography to enable topics of interest to be pursued
further. It also brings together speech and language technologies often
considered separately.

'Robustness in Language and Speech Technology' serves as a valuable
reference and although not intended as a formal university textbook,
contains some material that can be used for a course at the graduate or
undergraduate level.
