Abstract:
			
Typed feature structure formalisms allow linguistically precise and
theoretically motivated descriptions of human languages to be used in
real-world applications such as email response, spoken dialogue
systems, and machine translation. This book provides a theoretical and
practical introduction to typed feature structures and their use in
computational linguistics.

Implementing Typed Feature Structure Grammars includes informal, yet
rigorous, descriptions of typed feature structure logic as well as
formal definitions. This presentation covers the basics of grammar
development, introducing the reader to treatments of syntax,
morphology, and semantics and discussing the computational issues
involved in parsing and generation.

This book also acts as a user manual for the Linguistic Knowledge
Building (LKB) system, which was developed by the author and her
colleagues. The LKB system is a grammar and lexicon development
environment that allows the reader to experiment with the various
grammars described in the book and learn the details of the
formalism. However it is also powerful and efficient enough to support
development of large-scale grammars. The LKB system is freely
available as Open Source and is compatible with Windows, Linux, and
Solaris.
