The Handbook Of Computational Linguistics And Natural Language Processing
The Handbook of Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing
This comprehensive reference work provides an overview of the concepts, methodologies, and applications in computational linguistics and natural language processing (NLP).
- Features contributions by the top researchers in the field, reflecting the work that is driving the discipline forward
- Includes an introduction to the major theoretical issues in these fields, as well as the central engineering applications that the work has produced
- Presents the major developments in an accessible way, explaining the close connection between scientific understanding of the computational properties of natural language and the creation of effective language technologies
- Serves as an invaluable state-of-the-art reference source for computational linguists and software engineers developing NLP applications in industrial research and development labs of software companies
“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...
