Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Linguistic Structure Prediction
Written By: Noah A. Smith‌
Edited By: Graeme Hirst
URL: http://dx.doi.org/10.2200/S00361ED1V01Y201105HLT013
Description:

A major part of natural language processing now depends on the use of text
data to build linguistic analyzers. We consider statistical, computational
approaches to modeling linguistic structure. We seek to unify across many
approaches and many kinds of linguistic structures. Assuming a basic
understanding of natural language processing and/or machine learning, we seek
to bridge the gap between the two fields. Approaches to decoding (i.e., carrying
out linguistic structure prediction) and supervised and unsupervised learning of
models that predict discrete structures as outputs are the focus. We also
survey natural language processing problems to which these methods are being
applied, and we address related topics in probabilistic inference, optimization,
and experimental methodology.
