LM with RNNs
Different models have been studied, starting from the initial Recurrent neural network based language model (Mikolov et al. 2011).
LSTM were then used with more success than previous models (Zaremba, Sutskever, and Vinyals 2015).
Recently, transformers seem to have dominated language modeling. However it is not clear if this is due to their real superiority over RNNs or their practical scalability (Merity 2019).

Language modeling and Compression
Text generation
Language models can be used to generate text from a prompt or starting sentence. This is the kind of examples that made models like GPT-2 and GPT-3 famous, because of their ability to generate long sequences of apparently coherent text (Radford et al. 2019; Brown et al. 2020).
