Introduction to Japanese Natural Language Processing

About the Book

Japanese is a unique language, and even basic tasks like tokenization require a completely different approach from many other languages. This book is a guide to the tools you need to solve problems when working with Japanese text. Working code examples are accompanied by extensive references, so that whether you need to build a system from scratch, add Japanese support to an existing system, or integrate with a Japanese development team, you'll find what you need to understand the landscape of tools and problems and accomplish your goals.
