Number of pages: 198
The contents of the book are based on the course on computational linguistics that has been delivered by the authors since 1997 at the Center for Computing Research, National Polytechnic Institute, Mexico City. 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.

This text takes an empirical approach to the subject, based on applying statistical and machine-learning algorithms to large corporations. The authors describe a unified vision of speech and language processing. Emphasis is on practical applications.

We will go into many of the techniques that so-called computational linguists use to analyze the structure of human language, and transform it into a form that computers work with. We chose Haskell as the main programming language for this book.

Designed to bridge the gap for those who know Prolog but have no background in linguistics, this book concentrates on turning theories into practical techniques. Coverage includes template and keyword systems, definite clause grammars, and more.

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.
