[yapc] Perl NLP: Stemming and Lemmatizing

Tom Christiansen will give a talk at YAPC::NA_2012 described as:
     Perl is used in the NLP (natural language community) for a variety of
     tasks. In biomedical texts, words derived from Latin and Greek pose a
     big problem for English-language stemmers, because existing standard
     algorithms like Porter and Snowball fail to produce the base lemmas
     when faced with irregular plurals. 
     This talk reviews the problems with existing tools and presents the
     new Lingua::EN::Biolemmatizer module, which interfaces with the
     University of Colorados BioLemmatizer code to produce much more
     accurate results than were previously available.
