I have recently started learning Natural Language Processing and while reading research papers I came across terms like "Latent Dirichlet Allocation", "Latent Semantic Analysis", "Gaussian Distribution", etc. and I am unable to understand these topics from Wikipedia and other sources. So can you suggest me some good books for the same, i.e. semantic analysis in NLP?
Here are some. Hope that helps.
