**Speech and Language Processing**

by

**Dan Jurafsky, James H. Martin**-

**Stanford University**,

**2017**

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.

**How Mobile Robots Can Self-organise a Vocabulary**

by

**Paul Vogt**-

**Language Science Press**,

**2015**

This book presents a series of experiments in which two robots try to solve the symbol grounding problem. The experiments are based on the language game paradigm, and involve real mobile robots that are able to develop a grounded lexicon ...

**An Introduction to Stochastic Attribute-Value Grammars**

by

**Rob Malouf, Miles Osborne**-

**ESSLLI**,

**2001**

This text provides an introduction to the maximum entropy principle and the construction of maximum entropy models for natural language processing. We investigate the implementation of maximum entropy models for attribute-value grammars.

**Formal Language Theory for Natural Language Processing**

by

**Shuly Wintner**-

**ESSLLI**,

**2001**

This text 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 examples.

**Natural Language Processing for the Working Programmer**

by

**DaniĆ«l de Kok, Harm Brouwer**,

**2011**

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.

**Notes on Computational Linguistics**

by

**Edward Stabler**-

**UCLA**,

**2003**

What kind of computational device could use a system like a human language? This text explores the computational properties of devices that could compute morphological and syntactic analyses, and recognize semantic relations among sentences.

**A Maximum Entropy Approach to Natural Language Processing**

by

**A. L. Berger, S. A. Della Pietra, V. J. Della Pietra**-

**Association for Computational Linguistics**,

**1996**

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.

**Jon Barwise, John Etchemendy**-

**Center for the Study of Language**,

**2011**

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.

**Computational Linguistics**

by

**Igor Boshakov, Alexander Gelbukh**,

**2004**

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.
