Abstract

Computers cannot inherently understand human language, so the task of generating coherent and meaningful language is a major topic of interest in the field of computer science. The task at hand is to build a system of computation that automatically generates Shakespearean sonnets, by extending the common statistical models of English language to include constraints on syntax, semantics, and syllable counts.
