This volume is based on contributions from the First International
Conference on "Recent Advances in Natural Language
Processing" (RANLP'95) held in Tzigov Chark, Bulgaria, 14-16
September 1995. Of the 48 papers presented at RANLP'95, the best
(revised) papers have been selected for this book, in the hope that
they reflect the most significant and promising trends (and latest
successful results) in NLP.

The book is organized thematically and the contributions are grouped
according to the traditional topics found in NLP: morphology, syntax,
grammars, parsing, semantics, discourse, grammars, generation, machine
translation, corpus processing and multimedia. This book will be of
interest to researchers, lecturers and graduate students interested in
Natural Language Processing and more specifically to those who work in
Computational Linguistics, Corpus Linguistics and Machine Translation.
