The discipline makes use of concepts from other fields such as computer science, mathematics, philosophy, psychology, artificial intelligence, cognitive psychology, psycholinguistics, etc. The field helps in the development of speech recognition software. The objective of this book is to give a general view of the different areas of computational linguistics, and its applications. It strives to provide a fair idea about this discipline and to help develop a better understanding of the latest advances within this field. Students, researchers, experts and all associated with speech and language processing will benefit alike from this book.
