Coling 2000 Tutorial Announcement
The tutorial provides a introduction to the theory and practice of finite state approaches to computational linguistics, concentrating on 2-level morphology and finite state parsing. The tutorial will include live demonstrations of various finite state tools developed at Xerox
Those interested in applications of finite state technology to linguistic
Required Background: No special background but some familiarity with basic concepts of linguistics and programming will be an advantage.
Duration and Structure: 4 sessions each of 1 hr 20 mins.
Session I: Fundamentals of Finite State Languages and Automata
Session II: Computing with Regular Expressions
Session III: Compiling Lexicons
