Part of my work is researching ways to parse printed language. It can be very interesting but difficult to get a basic understanding of the techniques involved. Recently, I came across an excellent book called “Foundations of Statistical Natural Language Processing”. I am currently only to chapter 6 but I can say it is well worth the money. I am working through the book implementing the techniques in Lisp. I will be posting Chapter 5 as soon as I work out a few bugs and get it packaged nicely.
