Foundations of Statistical Natural Language Processing by Christopher D. Manning and Hinrich Schütze. MIT Press, pages, hardcover, list price. Foundations of Statistical Natural Language Processing. Christopher D. This book is designed as a thorough introduction to statistical approaches to natural language processing. There is a Collocations: PS PDF; 9. Markov Models: PS. Foundations of Statistical Natural Language Processing. Christopher D. functions, probability density functions (pdf), do not directly give the probabilities of.
This was due to both the steady increase in computational power see Moore's law and the gradual lessening of the dominance of Chomskyan theories of linguistics e. However, part-of-speech tagging introduced the use of hidden Markov models to natural language processing, and increasingly, research has focused on statistical models , which make soft, probabilistic decisions based on attaching real-valued weights to the features making up the input data.
The cache language models upon which many speech recognition systems now rely are examples of such statistical models. Such models are generally more robust when given unfamiliar input, especially input that contains errors as is very common for real-world data , and produce more reliable results when integrated into a larger system comprising multiple subtasks. Many of the notable early successes occurred in the field of machine translation , due especially to work at IBM Research, where successively more complicated statistical models were developed.
These systems were able to take advantage of existing multilingual textual corpora that had been produced by the Parliament of Canada and the European Union as a result of laws calling for the translation of all governmental proceedings into all official languages of the corresponding systems of government. However, most other systems depended on corpora specifically developed for the tasks implemented by these systems, which was and often continues to be a major limitation in the success of these systems.
As a result, a great deal of research has gone into methods of more effectively learning from limited amounts of data. Recent research has increasingly focused on unsupervised and semi-supervised learning algorithms. Such algorithms are able to learn from data that has not been hand-annotated with the desired answers, or using a combination of annotated and non-annotated data. Generally, this task is much more difficult than supervised learning , and typically produces less accurate results for a given amount of input data.
However, there is an enormous amount of non-annotated data available including, among other things, the entire content of the World Wide Web , which can often make up for the inferior results if the algorithm used has a low enough time complexity to be practical.
In the s, representation learning and deep neural network -style machine learning methods became widespread in natural language processing, due in part to a flurry of results showing that such techniques   can achieve state-of-the-art results in many natural language tasks, for example in language modeling,  parsing,   and many others.
Popular techniques include the use of word embeddings to capture semantic properties of words, and an increase in end-to-end learning of a higher-level task e. In some areas, this shift has entailed substantial changes in how NLP systems are designed, such that deep neural network-based approaches may be viewed as a new paradigm distinct from statistical natural language processing.
For instance, the term neural machine translation NMT emphasizes the fact that deep learning-based approaches to machine translation directly learn sequence-to-sequence transformations, obviating the need for intermediate steps such as word alignment and language modeling that were used in statistical machine translation SMT.
Rule-based vs. However, this is rarely robust to natural language variation. Since the so-called "statistical revolution"   in the late s and mid s, much natural language processing research has relied heavily on machine learning. The machine-learning paradigm calls instead for using statistical inference to automatically learn such rules through the analysis of large corpora of typical real-world examples a corpus plural, "corpora" is a set of documents, possibly with human or computer annotations.
Many different classes of machine-learning algorithms have been applied to natural-language-processing tasks. These algorithms take as input a large set of "features" that are generated from the input data. Some of the earliest-used algorithms, such as decision trees , produced systems of hard if-then rules similar to the systems of hand-written rules that were then common.

I found the book difficult to read not for its mathematical content, but because of the excessively wordy writing style. Brevity is much appreciated in technical content. I wouldn't recommend this book to someone trying to get started with NLP. I have much respect for the authors of course, I am only critiquing the book.
Besides just being outdated, this book can be super hard to understand at times. And it's not just me: There are some good parts I guess, but generally it's a difficult read with a lot of statistics and not much fundamentals. Only get this book if you have to. This book was used in a course on natural language processing in computer science. We only cover a sliver of the content presented in this textbook.
This book has tons of information and with much detailed information. The author did a great job covering almost all aspects of natural language processing as well as it's state in computing.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is serious in learning natural language processing whether you are a linguist or a computer scientist. Compared to the slightly overrated Jurafsky and Martin's classic, this book aims less targets but hits them all more precisely, completely and satisfactory for the reader.
That is, just to give you an idea on what to expect, instead of attacking problems on 2 pages each, this book attacks only 40 problems on 10 pages each.
So, read the TOC before you download the book: In contrast, you can download Jurafsky's book without caring to read the TOC: Some introductory chapters take too much space and some advanced topics are missing. But the book is actually named "Foundations of I recommend this book.
Unlike some of the reviewers here, my knowledge of NLP is acquired on the job and is focused more on technique and less on theory. I initially resisted downloading this book because of the price and bought other cheaper and more technique-oriented books instead. After downloading and reading the book, I think that its worth every penny. The book is really comprehensive, it covers in great detail all the techniques I know and know I need to know.
The math behind the algorithms are well explained, and allows you to generalize the ideas presented to new problems.
Overall an excellent book, definitely something you should consider acquiring sooner rather than later if you are serious about NLP.
A very useful and practical book on text-mining.
I love the way its content is organized and the language is very clear. It is quite "easy" to understand comparing to other text on NLP and quite easy to convert the knowledge in this book to algorithms in your code.
Highly recommend it if you consider getting started on text mining or general natural language processing. I downloadd this textbook initially for a class in statistical natural language processing in the Biomedical Informatics domain.
