In the modern information society, there is an ever-growing need for improved natural language processing and human language technologies.This book presents the proceedings of the Sixth International Conference 'Human Language Technologies – The Baltic Perspective' (Baltic HLT 2014) held in Kaunas, Lithuania in September 2014. The Baltic HLT conferences provide an important forum for gathering and consolidating ideas, and are an opportunity for the Baltic countries to present important research results to an international audience.
The book contains 39 long and short papers presented at the conference. These cover a wide range of topics: syntactic analysis, sentiment analysis, co-reference resolution, authorship attribution, information extraction, document clustering, machine translation, corpus and parallel corpus compiling, speech recognition, synthesis and others.
The book is divided into three main sections: speech technology, methods in computational linguistics, and preparation of language resources. This book will be of interest to anyone whose work involves the use and application of computational linguistics and related disciplines.
