SMT sounds really cool. I was reading a bit about transformation grammars in my James Allen 2nd Edition of Natural Language Understanding not too long ago. I think the two concepts are the same thing, but I could be wrong... ?

It is! I was just about to recommend it to you as a research area, as you are learning Hebrew and some have a penchant for etynological and linguistic tidbits.

Yes, transformation grammars are a technique pioneered by Eric Brill and used in statistical NLP apps, including, MT. See Brill's paper "Automatic Grammar Induction and Parsing Free Text: A Transformation-Based Approach" (1993).

Once I thought about getting an MRI done after talking to a co-worker at the IRS about Temporal Lobe Epilepsy because I'd read that people with TLE often have lesions (or tumors) in their hippocampus. He was extremely skeptical about having to worry about needing a surgery (and hadn't ever done it himself). But I tell you what, if I ever had to take an MRI to cure depression, that would be a really expensive way to do so. I'd rather be doing what good psychiatrists recommend for kids with ADHD: maintaining a high protein diet and getting plenty of exercise.

I even once thought about getting an MRI done to see if I have a hippocampus like Einstein's, but then I decided that I didn't really care all that much about that. I hate having to be stuck with needles, and went through my fair share of CAT scans and EEGs (which are painful in a different way [think having a pissed off nurse pick glue out of your hair because you still couldn't fall asleep for the EEG after having been up for 24 hours straight]). >_

I know - me too. But MIThril is part of BorgLab, nesupasu?
