Figure Shows What is Called a Finite State Machine

The above figure shows what is called a finite state machine. The machine reads one word at a time and transitions to a new state. The states are indicated by boxes and the transitions by arrows. There are three states and and the last is the final state (indicated by two coincident boxes) . The text beside each arrow means the following: determiner (a, an, the) , adjective, noun. The machine starts at and on seeing a determiner (DT) enters the state . Then if it sees an adjective , it remains in the same state. But at state if it sees a noun , it enters the final state. The final state is also called the “accept” state. No other states or state transitions are defined or permitted.
