The best textbook for language processing
on 13 April 2014
Anyone considering buying this will probably know about it already but just in case, here is some comment. It is extremely comprehensive. It assumes no knowledge of the subject. However, it assumes you are happy to plough through detailed descriptions of algorithms and up to about half a page at a time of equations with lots of sigma signs and conditional probabilities. If you are not comfortable with that, don't get it: It is well explained but dense - and long.
