Lexical semantics has become a major research area within computational
linguistics, drawing from psycholinguistics, knowledge representation,
computer algorithms and architecture. Research programmes whose goal is the
definition of large lexicons are asking what the appropriate representation
structure is for different facets of lexical information. Among these
facets, semantic information is probably the most complex and the least
explored. Computational Lexical Semantics is one of the first volumes to
provide models for the creation of various kinds of computerized lexicons
for the automatic treatment of natural language, with applications to
machine translation, automatic indexing, and database front-ends, knowledge
extraction, among other things. It focuses on semantic issues, as seen by
linguists, psychologists and computer scientists. Besides describing
academic research, it also covers ongoing industrial projects.
