Abstract:
			
This book introduces the concept of information sharing as an area of
cognitive science. Information sharing is defined here as the process
by which speakers depend on `given' information (i.e., information
already shared with the hearer from previous communication) when they
convey `new' information (i.e., information assumed to be new to the
hearer). Information sharing is a key concept in linguistics and
philosophy, where it is related to notions like presupposition,
anaphora, focus, and indexicality. It is also perceived as crucial in
various areas of language engineering because computer-based
processing of language and speech relies heavily on the computer's
ability to distinguish between given and new information.

Where previous work in information sharing is often fragmented between
different academic disciplines (in particular, between linguistics and
computer science), the present volume brings together theoretical and
applied work, and it joins computational contributions with papers
based on an analysis of language corpora and on psycholinguistic
experimentation. A remarkable number of the contributions take a
generation-oriented, rather than an interpretation-oriented
perspective, asking what is the most appropriate verbal expression of
an item of information in a given situation.
