Statistical and Corpora Based Methods for Processing Natural Languages

Alon Itai

Corpora based methods attempt to learn usage patterns from large bodies of texts, and then utilize this knowledge to solve problems in Natural Language processing. For example:
Word sense disambiguation - How to distinguish between river bank and bank as a financial institution.
Part of speech tagging - How to distinguish between book the noun, and book the verb.
Alignment - Find the correspondence between words, sentences and paragraphs of a source text and its translation.
Morphological disambiguation in Hebrew - How to read correctly regular (unvocalized) Hebrew Script.
