Abstract:

Over the past two decades, statistical and other quantitative concepts,
models and methods have been increasingly gaining importance and interest
in all areas of linguistics and text analysis, as well as in a number of
neighboring disciplines and areas of application. The term "quantitative
linguistics" comprises all scientific and technical approaches which use
such terms and methods in the analysis of or work with language(s), texts
and other related subjects.

The 71 articles in this handbook, written by internationally-recognized
experts, offer a broad, up-to-date overview of the scientific-theoretical
principles, the history, the diversity of the subject areas studied, the
methods and models used, the results obtained thus far and their applications.

The articles are divided up into thirteen chapters: the first chapter
includes contributions on the basic principles and the history of the
field, nine additional chapters are dedicated to individual descriptions of
the levels of linguistic research (from phonology to pragmatics) as well as
typological, diachronic and geolinguistic questions. The next two chapters
include a description of important models, hypotheses and principles;
selected areas of application; and references to neighboring disciplines.
The last portion of the handbook is an informative contribution, with
information about publication forums, bibliographies, major projects,
Internet links, etc.

This handbook is useful not only for researchers, teachers and students of
all branches of linguistics and the philologies, but also for scientists in
neighboring fields, whose theoretical and empirical research touches on
linguistic questions (for instance, psychology and sociology), or for those
who want to make use of the proven methods or results from quantitative
linguistics in their own research.

KEY FEATURES:
*International authors
*Unique and fundamental systematics of the field
*Multidisciplinary and application-oriented
