Book Description

3 Mar 2005 0521530695 978-0521530699 Pap/Cdr
This major new textbook provides a clearly-written, concise and accessible introduction to speech and language processing. Assuming knowledge of only the very basics of linguistics and written specifically for students with no technical background, it is the perfect starting point for anyone beginning to study the discipline. Students are introduced to topics such as digital signal processing, speech analysis and synthesis, finite-state machines, automatic speech recognition, parsing and probabilistic grammars, and are shown from a very elementary level how to work with two programming languages, C and Prolog. The accompanying CD-ROM contains all the software described in the book, along with a C compiler, Prolog interpreter and sound file editor, thus providing a self-contained, one-stop resource for the learner. Setting a firm grounding in speech and language processing and an invaluable foundation for further study, Introducing Speech and Language Processing is set to become the leading introduction to the field.

Review

'An excellent book for beginners in linguistics and speech science with PC experience but no programming knowledge.' Yoshinori Sagisaka, GITI Waseda University, Japan, and Editor-in-Chief, Speech Communication

'In conclusion, Coleman has produced an excellent textbook and one which will be extremely valuable to many students and teachers since it does a great deal to render accessible an area which is usually only covered by much more technical works.' Journal of the International Phonetic Association

5.0 out of 5 stars One of a kind 21 Nov 2007
By Benjamin M. Rutter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
John Coleman is an expert in his field, and he has produced the only introduction to this area for beginners. Aimed at linguists with no real expetise in computing, this is a must for anybody wanting to familiarise themselves with computational linguistics.

5.0 out of 5 stars higher that 5-star rating 9 Nov 2005
By Mikhail Ordin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the best introduction into speech sciences for linguistic students, especially for phoneticians. I wish I had such a book when I first struggled with technical writings on speech processing. Material is organized perfectly, style is clear, easy read. after reading this book it is possible to take amore advanced and more technical ones, e.g. by Jurafsky and Martin. Students who feel overt to math enjoyed the curse based on this book and joyfully played with C programs to modify the results. No woner if the book becomes a compulsory textbook for an introductory course on computational linguistics or speech processing at linguistic departments. I feel obliged to the author for the book. It is not a 5-star rating, of course, it is definitely higher. Many thanks to the publisher for evaluation copy.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introductory text 2 Sep 2013
By Margaret Renwick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book provides an excellent introduction to speech and language processing, including a hands-on component, which is appropriate even for students with no programming background. It's written in a clever but approachable style.
