Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

“It includes a wide variety of papers on linguistics and the foundations of verification, written by top people in the field. This review only discusses the most interesting contributions. … On the linguistic side, I enjoyed reading Winter, Lavie, and MacWhinney’s paper, ’Formal grammars of early language,’ for its experimental approach to the development of grammar in child language development. … libraries should look to acquire this text for their collections.” (K. Lodaya, ACM Computing Reviews, March, 2010)
