I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the Babylon project, to the
creation of this thesis, and to the progress of my life in general.
To Rada, whose patience, suggestions, and time have most contributed to the
completion of this project and to my continued adequacy in the graduate department.
I would never have completed this thesis without your encouragement and the gentle
guilt that comes from the fear of letting down someone whom you respect and admire.
To Kevin Scannell, Christian Loza, and Cameron Palmer for contributing to this
project by providing monolingual seed data, Bible translations, code samples, brain-
storming sessions, and late nights fighting with Moses. Thank you!
To Drs. Tarau and Chen, for taking the time to attend my defense, serve on my
committee, and rake me over the coals. Thank you!
To my colleagues in the Language and Information Technologies groups at both
UNT and IPN, for your ideas, support, camaraderie, and inspiration as I try to work
my way into the research community. Thank you!
To my parents, Artie and Gaylord Mohler, for always believing that I could accom-
plish anything. For being there to bail me out when I get in over my head. For giving
me free reign to explore the wonders this life has to offer. Thank you!
To all my friends and family, for the countless contributions you have all made to
my life - the ones that I often overlook. For never giving up on me. For freeing me
from myself. Thank you!
Here’s what’s next.
