You may choose a different domain than a Rogerian psychologist, if you wish, although keep in mind that you would need a domain in which your program can legitimately do a lot of simple repeating-back.

Finally, for many applications we need to know how similar two words are orthographically. Morphological parsing is one method for computing this similarity, but another is to just compare the strings of letters to see how similar they are. A common way of doing this is with the minimum edit distance algorithm, which is important throughout NLP. We’ll introduce this algorithm and also show how it can be used in spell-checking. 1 S URVEY OF (M OSTLY ) E NGLISH M ORPHOLOGY MORPHEMES STEMS AFFIXES Morphology is the study of the way words are built up from smaller meaning-bearing units, morphemes.
