Abstract:

Anaphora is a central topic in the study of natural language and has long
been the object of research in a wide range of disciplines. The correct
interpretation of anaphora has also become increasingly important for
real-world natural language processing applications, including machine
translation, automatic abstracting, information extraction and question
answering.

This volume provides a unique overview of the processing of anaphora from a
multi- and inter-disciplinary angle. It will be of interest and practical
use to readers from fields as diverse as theoretical linguistics, corpus
linguistics, computational linguistics, computer science, natural language
processing, artificial intelligence, human language technology,
psycholinguistics, cognitive science and translation studies.

The readership includes but is not limited to university lecturers,
researchers, postgraduate and senior undergraduate students.

Abstract:

This volume brings together revised versions of a selection of papers
presented at the 2003 International Conference on "Recent Advances in
Natural Language Processing".

A wide range of topics is covered in the volume: semantics, dialog,
summarization, anaphora resolution, shallow parsing, morphology,
part-of-speech tagging, named entity, question answering, word sense
disambiguation, information extraction. Various 'state-of-the-art'
techniques are explored: finite state processing, machine learning (support
vector machines, maximum entropy, decision trees, memory-based learning,
inductive logic programming, transformation-based learning, perceptions),
latent semantic analysis, constraint programming. The papers address
different languages (Arabic, English, German, Slavic languages) and use
different linguistic frameworks (HPSG, LFG, constraint-based DCG).

This book will be of interest to those who work in computational
linguistics, corpus linguistics, human language technology, translation
studies, cognitive science, psycholinguistics, artificial intelligence, and
informatics.
