Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"... the editors did a good job in projecting a collection of works representing the state of the art in computational semantics. The book contains material that will be of value especially to experts in this field. However, most of the papers in the volume will also be relevant to researchers from other branches of computational linguistics who are interested in theoretical aspects of the computation of meaning in natural language."
(Computational Linguistics, 27:1 (1999)
