Overview

Assuming knowledge of only the very basics of linguistics, this major new textbook provides a concise and accessible introduction to speech and language processing. Students are introduced to topics such as digital signal processing, speech analysis and synthesis, finite-state machines, automatic speech recognition, parsing and probabilistic grammars, and are shown from a very elementary level how to work with two programming languages, C and Prolog.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'An excellent book for beginners in linguistics and speech science with PC experience but no programming knowledge.' Yoshinori Sagisaka, GITI Waseda University, Japan, and Editor-in-Chief, Speech Communication

'In conclusion, Coleman has produced an excellent textbook and one which will be extremely valuable to many students and teachers since it does a great deal to render accessible an area which is usually only covered by much more technical works.' Journal of the International Phonetic Association
