TREND #1:COMPUTATIONAL RESEARCH ISUNREASONABLY EFFECTIVE
“in 2006, Google released a trillion-word corpuswith frequency counts for all sequences up tofive words long. In some ways this corpus is astep backwards…it’s taken from unfiltered Webpages and thus contains incomplete sentences,spelling errors, grammatical errors, and all sortsof other errors. It’s not annotated with carefullyhand-corrected part-of-speech tags. But the factthat it’s a million times larger…outweighs thesedrawbacks.”
