This paper proposes a new approach for acquiring morpho-lexical probabilities from an untagged corpus. This approach demonstrates a way to extract very useful and nontrivial information from an untagged corpus, which otherwise would require laborious tagging of large corpora. The paper describes the use of these morpho-lexical probabilities as an(More)
Due to recent development in the area of computational formalisms for linguistic representation, the task of designing a parser for a speciied natural language is now shifted to the problem of designing its grammar in certain formal ways. This paper describes the results of a project whose aim was to design a formal grammar for modern Hebrew. Such a formal(More)
Hebrew, as other ~emitic languages, has a rich morpl1ology, observable in part by the complexity of verb inflections. The primary base of verbs in Hebrew is the past third singular form of tlfe verb. From this base, some twenty eight different inflected forms can be created according to tense, per~on, gender and number. Traditionally, inflection tables were(More)
approximations to words in his parents' speech an ability that manifests itself roughly between the tenth (0:10) and twenty-second (1:10) months. How, for example, does the child select a particular segment of his parents' speech to approximate ? Typically the child does not encounter words in isolation but rather as part of a sentence with no obvious(More)
