Summary "The book will appeal to scholars and advanced students of morphology, syntax, computational linguistics, and natural language processing (NLP). It provides a critical and practical guide to computational techniques for handling morphological and syntactic phenomena, showing how these techniques have been used and modified in practice." "The authors discuss the nature and uses of syntactic parsers and examine the problems and opportunities of parsing algorithms for finite-state, context-free, and various context-sensitive grammars. They relate approaches for describing syntax and morphology to formal mechanisms and algorithms, and present approaches for augmenting grammars with weights or probabilities."--BOOK JACKET.
