...but don't forget even earlier Corpus Linguistics research done
without computers. For example modern Language Engineering researchers
extract Zipf distributions and Markov models from corpora; this was
done earlier "by hand" :
Zipf, George Kingsley (1936) "The psycho-biology of language : an
introduction to dynamic philology" London : G. Routledge & sons
Markov, A.A. (1913) "Essai d'une recherche statistique sur le texte du
roman 'Eugene Onegin' illustrant la liaison des epreuve en chain"
Izvestia Imperatorskoi Akademii Nauk (Bulletin de l'Academie Imperiale
des Sciences de St-Petersbourg) 7:153-162.
Does anyone have an earlier citation???
PS Leeds library has Zipf book but I dont actually have a copy of Markov paper,
I copied the citation from Jurafsky&Martin(2000) "Speech and Language
Processing" Prentice Hall - can someone let me have a copy please PLEASE?
