Natural Language Processing for Prolog Programmers
by Michael A. Covington
Publisher: Prentice-Hall 1994
Number of pages: 361
Designed to bridge the gap for those who know Prolog but have little or no background in linguistics, this book concentrates on turning theories into practical techniques. Coverage includes template and keyword systems, definite clause grammars (DCGs), English syntax, unification-based grammar, parsing algorithms, semantics, and morphology.

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.

The book covers the boolean connectives, formal proof techniques, quantifiers, basic set theory, induction, proofs of soundness and completeness for propositional and predicate logic, and an accessible sketch of Godel's first incompleteness theorem.

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.
by Igor Boshakov, Alexander Gelbukh
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.
