Language Processing Textbook and Lecture Slides

A link to the lecture slides prepared by the author of the textbook has been posted on the course web page.

So far, there has not been any response for the textbook order Option 1. If we have not received ten or more order requests in Option 1 by September 14, it is automatically assumed that each student orders the textbook individually. Again, having own textbook is a requirement for the course.
