Adaptive Statistical Language Modeling; A Maximum Entropy Approach

  title={Adaptive Statistical Language Modeling; A Maximum Entropy Approach},
  author={Ronald Rosenfeld},
Language modeling is the attempt to characterize, capture and exploit regularities in natural language. In statistical language modeling, large amounts of text are used to automatically determine the model's parameters. Language modeling is useful in automatic speech recognition, machine translation, and any other application that processes natural language with incomplete knowledge. In this thesis, I view language as an information source which emits a stream of symbols from a finite alphabet… CONTINUE READING
