Book Description

Designed to bridge the gap for those who know Prolog but have little or no background in linguistics, this book concentrates on turning theories into practical techniques. Coverage includes template and keyword systems, definite clause grammars (DCGs), English syntax, unification-based grammar, parsing algorithms, semantics, and morphology. Helpful appendices present an in-depth review of Prolog and ready-to-use string input and tokenization routines

An examination of natural language processing in Prolog for those who know Prolog but not linguistics, this book enables students to move quickly into writing and working in useful software. It features many working computer programs that implement subsystems of a natural language processor.

These programs are designed to be understood in isolation from one another and are compatible with an Edinburgh-compatible Prolog implementation, such as Quintus, ESL, Arity and ALS.
