Finite-state transducers in language and speech processing.

Finite-state devices such as finite-state automata and finite-state transducers have been known since the emergence of computer science and are recently extensively used in many areas of natural language processing. Their use is motivated by their time and space efficiency and the fact that many relevant local language phenomena can be easily and intuitively expressed as finite-state devices.
