•In North America, one of the few early general texts on pattern recognition, Pattern Recognition Principles (1974), by Tou and Gonzalez, had the last chapter (chapter 8)
titled “Syntactic Pattern Recognition” and considered “structural” pattern
•Among English books that came out in the ’70s
and ’80s and devoted entirely to this topic, we had those by Fu (Syntactic Pattern Recognition and Applications),Grenander (Lectures
in Pattern Theory),Gonzalez and Thomason (Syntactic
Pattern Recognition), Watanabe (Pattern
Recognition) and several others.
