Overview

The Handbook of Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing provides a comprehensive overview of the concepts, methodologies, and applications being undertaken today in computational linguistics and natural language processing.

The major developments in this dynamic field and a detailed synopsis of the most cutting-edge research are presented in an accessible way that explains the close connection between scientific understanding of the computational properties of natural language and the creation of effective language technologies. The Handbook serves as an invaluable state-of-the-art reference source for computational linguists and software engineers developing natural language applications in industrial research and development labs of software companies, as well as for graduate students and researchers in computer science, linguistics, psychology, philosophy, and mathematics, working within computational linguistics.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“The overall evaluation is therefore definitely very good: the work is solid, complete and definitely an important reference for NLP and CL.”  (Linguistlist, 14 January 2014)

“Altogether, this Handbookcovers a wide variety of topics in NLP and CL and, is of particular use to researchers in the field of MT. On a more general note, graduate students or novice researchers can utilise this book as a comprehensive starting point for their area of interest within NLP or CL … All in all, this is very well compiled book, which effectively balances the width and depth of theories and applications in two very diverse yet closely related fields of language research.”  (Machine Translation, 18 March 2012)
