Overview

Computational Lexical Semantics is one of the first volumes to provide models for the creation of various kinds of computerized lexicons for the automatic treatment of natural language, with applications to, among other things, machine translation, automatic indexing, database front-ends, and knowledge extraction. It focuses on semantic issues, as seen by linguists, psychologists, and computer scientists. Besides describing academic research, the book also covers ongoing industrial projects.
