In studying for my exam last week, I realized that I was actually very thankful that the textbook for this class is really awesome. I think it explains topics very well, and I highly recommend it. It is: Speech and Language Processing: An Introduction to Natural Language Processing, Computational Linguistics and Speech Recognition by D. Jurafsky & James H. Martin. I’m using the second edition.
I also marked some of the topics I studied as interesting and that I should go back to them later:
- Maximum Entropy Models
- Syntactic Parsing
- Dependency Parsing
