Foundations of Computational Linguistics: Human-Computer Communication in
Natural Language
Second revised and extended edition
Author: R. Hausser, Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-N�rnberg,
Erlangen, Germany
2001. XIV, 578 pp. Hardcover
ISBN: 3-540-42417-2, Recommended Retail Price DM 89,90

The central task of a future-oriented computational linguistics is the
development of cognitive machines which humans can freely talk with in
their respective natural language. In the long run, this task will
ensure the development of a functional theory of language, an
objective method of verification, and a wide range of practical
applications.

Natural communication requires not only verbal processing, but also
non-verbal perception and action. Therefore the content of this
textbook is organized as a theory of language for the construction of
talking robots. The main topic is the mechanism of natural language
communication in both the speaker and the hearer. The content is
divided into four parts: Theory of Language, Theory of Grammar,
Morphology and Syntax, Semantics and Pragmatics.The book contains more
than 700 exercises for reviewing key ideas and important problems. In
the Second Edition, changes are most noticeable in Chapters 22-24,
which have been completely rewritten. They present a declarative
outline for programming the semantic and pragmatic interpretation of
natural language communication. The presentation is now simpler and
more comprehensive. It is defined as a formal fragment and includes a
new control structure, an analysis of spatio-temporal infer-encing,
and an analysis of internal matching based on the notion of a task
analysis. Examples and explanations which were contained in the old
versions of Chapters 22-24 have been moved to the new Appendix. A
schematic summary and a conclusion have been added as well.
