Overview

International experts contribute 38 chapters covering major concepts, methods, and applications for computational linguistics. The handbook provides a current reference on the field for use by a wide range of linguists as well as researchers and students in artificial intelligence, infomatics, language engineering, translation, and cognitive science. Structured with a progression from theory to application, the handbook begins with the main areas of linguistics and varied topics in mathematical linguistics. The book then covers the tasks, methods, and resources in and required for automatic language processing. Later chapters cover real-world applications of computational linguistics techniques. The book is cross-referenced and includes a glossary. Mitkov is a professor of computational linguistics and language engineering at the University of Wolverhampton.
