Formal Language Theory for Natural Language Processing
by Shuly Wintner
Publisher: ESSLLI 2001
Number of pages: 52
This course is a mild introduction to Formal Language Theory for students with little or no background in formal systems. The motivation is Natural Language Processing, and the presentation is geared towards NLP applications, with extensive linguistically motivated examples. Still, mathematical rigor is not compromised, and students are expected to have a formal grasp of the material by the end of the course.
