I am currently working with John Lafferty and Danny Sleator on statistical language modeling using grammatical information. You can find more information by examining my thesis proposal [Abstract]. You should also look at the Grammatical Trigrams homepage which includes a general project description, papers, and demos. My thesis committee is composed of
