Zipf s law is a special case of Mandelbrot's law. We understand this, but we ignore how to apply this understanding to the understanding of unknown languages...

This dissertation introduces and begins an investigation of an MT model consisting of a novel combination finite-state devices. The model proposed is more flexible than transducer models, giving increased ability to handle word order di ferences between languages, as well as crossing and discontinuous alignments between words. The linked automata MT model consists of a source language automaton, a target language automaton, and an alignment table, a function which probabilistically links sequences of source and target language transitions. It is this augmentation to the finite-state base which gives the linked automata model its flexibility.

the object of study is a two-dimensional information production process, i.e. where one has sources (e.g. journals, authors, words, ...) which produce (or have) items (e.g. respectively articles, publications, words occurring in texts, ...) and in which one considers different functions describing quantitatively the production quantities of the different sources.

All functions can be reduced to one type of
function, namely the size-frequency function f: such a function gives, for every n = 1, 2, 3, ..., the number f(n), being the number of sources with n items. This is the framework of study and in this framework we want to explain as many regularities that one encounters in the literature as possible, using the size-frequency function f.
