Representing Natural Language as LISP Data Structures and LISP Code

  • Mark Watson


Natural language processing (NLP) systems allow interaction with a computer using natural language. NLP systems are practical to build when the system vocabulary is small and the domain of discourse limited. In section 8.1, the basic techniques will be developed for parsing Natural Language (NL) text using syntactical analysis by starting with a simple parser which recognizes noun phrases. We will use this first simple noun phrase parser to introduce the notation for augmented transition networks (ATNs).
