This book teaches the principles of natural language processing, first
covering linguistics issues such as encoding, entropy, and annotation
schemes; defining words, tokens and parts of speech; and
morphology. It then details the language-processing functions
involved, including part-of-speech tagging using rules and stochastic
techniques; using Prolog to write phase-structure grammars; parsing
techniques and syntactic formalisms; semantics, predicate logic and
lexical semantics; and analysis of discourse, and applications in
dialog systems. The key feature of the book is the author's hands-on
approach throughout, with extensive exercises, sample code in Prolog
and Perl, and a detailed introduction to Prolog. The reader is
supported with a companion website that contains teaching slides,
programs, and additional material.
