Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

"Roland Hausser’s book provides a clear and detailed introduction into the field of database semantics (or DBS). The task of the database semantics project is to provide a model of natural language communication between human agents and robots. … The book is divided into three parts. … This is a competent and carefully crafted book. … The book will be valuable for instructors and graduate students in computer science and linguistics. Advanced undergraduates may also study it with profit." (Sandy Berkovski, Natural Language Engineering, Vol. 15 (3), 2009)
