One of the final goals of natural language processing is building a model to capture the semantic meaning of language elements. Language modeling is a recent research trend to build a statistical model to express the meaning of language. The language model is based on the distributional hypothesis. The distributional hypothesis indicates that the surrounding elements of the target element describe the meaning of the element. In other words, relative positions between sentence elements (morphologies, words, and sentences) are essential to know the element's meaning. Recent works on distributed representation mainly focus on relations between clear elements: characters, morphologies, words, and sentences. However, it is essential to use structural information of languages such as dependency and semantic roles for building a human-understandable statistical model of languages. In this talk, we describe the statistical language model's basis and then discuss our research direction to introduce the language structure.
