Mathematical Models of Spoken Language

Buy
Humans use language to convey meaningful messages to each other. Linguistic competence consists in the ability to express meaning reliably, not simply to obtain faithful lexical transcriptions. This invaluable reference tool is the product of many years' experience and research on language and speech technology. It presents the motivations for, intuitions behind and basic mathematical models of natural spoken language communication. From a preliminary discussion on the physics of speech production and the taxonomy of linguistic structure, there is a natural progression taking in issues of grammatical inference, automatic speech recognition and constructive theories of language. The author counterbalances theoretical explanations and illustrations with questions of a more philosophical nature designed to highlight the seemingly limitless future potential of speech technology.
  • Emphasizes the physics of speech production in an argument underpinned by mathematical models of linguistic structure.
  • Collates the formalisms and perspectives used by linguists and engineers and examines established theories, including the Markov process, the Chomsky hierarchy, the Miller-Nicely experiments and Baum and Baker’s experiments.
  • Contains strong sections on the current status and evolution of Artificial Intelligence, the problem of consciousness and future prospects for a science of the mind.
  • Illustrates all points throughout using detailed real world examples.
This comprehensive resource will appeal to researchers and practitioners in the fields of mathematical linguistics and speech technology as well as those in the related disciplines of psychology, artificial intelligence, automata theory, information theory and philosophy.

Hickman's Analog and RF Circuits
Hickman's Analog and RF Circuits

I have been writing articles for magazines since the early 1970s, and many of these have been published in Electronics World (founded in 1911 as The Marconigraph but known for most of its life as Wireless World). This is undoubtedly the foremost electronics magazine in the UK, being widely read by professional electronics engineers on the one...

Wide-Bandwidth High Dynamic Range D/A Converters
Wide-Bandwidth High Dynamic Range D/A Converters
Wide-bandwidth high dynamic range Digital to Analog Converters (D/A) are essential elements of modern systems, e.g. multi-carrier communication systems. Current Steering D/A converters offer the potential to achieve high dynamic range for wide frequency bandwidths, however, their performance at higher frequencies is usually limited by strong...

Essential Urologic Laparoscopy: The Complete Clinical Guide (Current Clinical Urology)

Leading academic urologists and physicians detail how to perform the major adult urologic laparoscopic procedures. The authors offer clear, concise chapters focusing on getting started, laparoscopic instrumentation, and step-by-step procedural adult laparoscopy. The instrumentation chapter is completely cross-referenced so that operating room...

Database Annotation in Molecular Biology: Principles and Practice
Database Annotation in Molecular Biology: Principles and Practice
Two factors dominate current molecular biology: the amount of raw data is increasing very rapidly and successful applications in biomedical research require carefully curated and annotated databases.  The quality of the data - especially nucleic acid sequences - is satisfactory; however, annotations depend on features inferred from the data...
Oscillation Theory of Partial Differential Equations
Oscillation Theory of Partial Differential Equations

This unique book is designed to provide the reader with an exposition of interesting aspects -- encompassing both rudimentary and advanced knowledge -- of oscillation theory of partial differential equations, which dates back to the publication in 1955 of a paper by Ph Hartman and A Wintner. The objective of oscillation theory is to acquire...
