Thanks for the reading suggestion. I've done a lot of work with n-grams.
Nice to see a pragmatic treatment of the subject. Too bad I didn't read
it back in school. BTW, Volume 1 UNIX System Readings and Applications
(reprint of 1978 BSTJ 57:6 part 2 - the UNIX issue) is available at:
And, volume 2 UNIX System Readings and Applications (1984 BSTJ 63:8 -
the 2nd UNIX issue) is also available, at:
Much cleaner than the other copies.
