Speech and Language Processing: An Introduction to Natural Language Processing, Computational Linguistics and Speech Recognition
Prentice Hall | 2000 | 975 pages | DJVU | 5 MB

This book is an absolute necessity for instructors at all levels, as well as an indispensable reference for researchers. Introducing NLP, computational linguistics, and speech recognition comprehensively in a single book is an ambitious enterprise. The authors have managed it admirably, paying careful attention to traditional foundations, relating recent developments and trends to those foundations, and tying it all together with insight and humor.
