Natural language processing (NLP) is a theory-motivated range of computational techniques for the automatic analysis and representation of human language. NLP research has evolved from the era of punch cards and batch processing (in which the analysis of a sentence could take up to 7 minutes) to the era of Google and the likes of it (in which millions of webpages can be processed in less than a second). This review paper draws on recent developments in NLP research to look at the past, present…

A general scheme of application of evolutionary techniques to NLP is defined, which gives the mainstream for the design of the elements of the algorithm and has been illustrated with two fundamental applications in NLP: tagging and parsing.

Foundations of statistical natural language processing

This foundational text is the first comprehensive introduction to statistical natural language processing (NLP) to appear and provides broad but rigorous coverage of mathematical and linguistic foundations, as well as detailed discussion of statistical methods, allowing students and researchers to construct their own implementations.

Knowledge-Based Systems for Natural Language Processing

Some of the best practices in knowledgebased NLP will be illustrated through several NLP systems that use semantic and world knowledge to resolve ambiguities and extract meanings of sentences.

Ambiguity resolution analysis in incremental parsing of natural language

A systematic analysis of the behavior of the network allows for important insights about the kind of information that is exploited to resolve different forms of ambiguity in incremental parsing.

Computing With Words Is an Implementable Paradigm: Fuzzy Queries, Linguistic Data Summaries, and Natural-Language Generation

This paper presents crucial elements of CWW, in particular Zadeh's protoforms, and indicates their power and stress a need to develop new tools to handle more modalities, and presents the approach to linguistic data(base) summaries, which is a very intuitive and human-consistent natural-language-based knowledge-discovery tool.

Symbolic connectionism in natural language disambiguation

This hybrid system is more sophisticated in tackling language disambiguation problems by using linguistic clues from disparate sources as well as modeling context effects into the sentence analysis, and is potentially more powerful than any systems relying on one processing paradigm.

Evaluating Natural Language Processing Systems: An Analysis and Review

This comprehensive state-of-the-art book is the first devoted to the important and timely issue of evaluating NLP systems, and provides a wide-ranging and careful analysis of evaluation concepts, reinforced with extensive illustrations.

Automatic Acquisition of Hyponyms from Large Text Corpora

A set of lexico-syntactic patterns that are easily recognizable, that occur frequently and across text genre boundaries, and that indisputably indicate the lexical relation of interest are identified.

Frame-Based Detection of Opinion Holders and Topics: A Model and a Tool

Sentilo implements an approach based on the neo-Davidsonian assumption that events and situations are the primary entities for contextualizing opinions, which makes it able to distinguish holders, main topics, and sub-topics of an opinion.

Probase: a probabilistic taxonomy for text understanding

This paper presents a universal, probabilistic taxonomy that is more comprehensive than any existing ones, and contains 2.7 million concepts harnessed automatically from a corpus of 1.68 billion web pages.
