"Add-one" vs. "additive"[edit]

The entry claims that Jurafsky and Martin use the term "additive smoothing", but they actually use the term "add-one smoothing" (as do Russell/Norvig). It would be worth seeing which term Manning/Schütze actually use, but I would have to get the book out of the library to find out. -AlanUS (talk) 18:22, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
