Foundations of Computational Linguistics: Human-Computer by Roland Hausser

By Roland Hausser

The imperative activity of a future-oriented computational linguistics is the improvement of cognitive machines which people can freely speak with of their respective typical language. ultimately, this activity will make sure the improvement of a practical concept of language, an goal approach to verification, and a variety of useful purposes. traditional communique calls for not just verbal processing, but in addition non-verbal notion and motion. hence the content material of this textbook is equipped as a idea of language for the development of conversing robots. the most subject is the mechanism of common language communique in either the speaker and the hearer.

In the 3rd version the writer has modernized the textual content, leaving the review of conventional, theoretical, and computational linguistics, analytic philosophy of language, and mathematical complexity conception with their ancient backgrounds intact. The layout of the empirical analyses of English and German syntax and semantics has been tailored to present perform; and Chaps. 22–24 were rewritten to concentration extra sharply at the development of a conversing robot.

Sample text

One reason why the earlier discovery of this technique did not prevail is the great number of Chinese characters, which are not as suitable for printing as the roughly 40 characters of the Latin alphabet (the Korean alphabet Hangul was designed much later, in 1446). The other is that the early printing in Asia was done by hand only, whereas Gutenberg – presumably inspired by the wine presses of his time – integrated the printing blocks into a mechanism which facilitated and sped up the printing of pages, and which could be combined with an engine to run automatically.

There are many users and many circumstances of use for which input to a computer based on spoken language would be considerably more user friendly than typing on a keyboard. 18 The quality of automatic speech recognition should be at least equal to that of an average human hearer. This leads to the following desiderata: 16 ASCII stands for American Standard Code for Information Interchange. 17 Each instance of such a type is coded identically to any other instance of the same type. For further discussion of the type-token distinction, see Sect.

2. (b) Machine translation Especially in the European Union, currently with 24 official languages, the potential utility of automatic or even semi-automatic translation systems is tremendous. Different approaches to machine translation are described in Sects. 5. , must constantly modify the associated product descriptions and maintenance manuals.
