We discuss a family of estimators for the entropy rate of a stationary ergodic process and prove their pointwise and mean consistency under a Doeblin-type mixing condition. The estimators are Cesaro averages of longest match-lengths, and their consistency follows from a generalized ergodic theorem due to Maker (1940). We provide examples of their performance on English text, and we generalize our results to countable alphabet processes and to random fields
