Computational approaches to morphology and syntax by Brian Roark

By Brian Roark

The booklet will entice students and complex scholars of morphology, syntax, computational linguistics and usual language processing (NLP). It offers a severe and functional consultant to computational suggestions for dealing with morphological and syntactic phenomena, displaying how those strategies were used and converted in perform.

The authors speak about the character and makes use of of syntactic parsers and think about the issues and possibilities of parsing algorithms for finite-state, context-free and diverse context-sensitive grammars. They relate methods for describing syntax and morphology to formal mechanisms and algorithms, and current well-motivated ways for augmenting grammars with weights or probabilities.

Example text

McCarthy and Prince, 1990) Prosodic circumscription starts with factoring a base into a prosodically defined unit and its residue. For example, we might define a syllable at the right edge of a stem as a prosodically defined unit, in which case the whole stem to the left of the final syllable is the residue. Or we might define the initial onset of the stem as the prosodically defined unit, in which case the remainder of the stem after the onset would be the residue. 8) Prosodic morphological operations can then be defined to apply either to the prosodically defined unit B: or to the residue B/.

7. In one sense the description just given is simpler than that of McCarthy and Prince: note that once one has defined the placement of the marker, subsequent operations merely need to reference that marker and have no need of notions like “prosodically defined unit” or “residue”. , t-). 1 Comparative affixation in English fat dumb sìlly yéllow timid curious fatter dumber sillier yellower timider ∗ curiouser fattest dumbest silliest yellowest timidest ∗ curiousest conception, but at the level of computational implementation, the distinction is immaterial.
