Semantic Information Processing

This is an old book where Marvin Minskey has collected various articles on NLP and combined into a book. If you are interested in where it all started, you should read this book. It talks about how Minskey and other researchers in 70’s looked at NLP and how they build interfaces that could parse simple commands. A lot of papers have research ideas that are no longer being pursued but definitely very interesting to read about.
