Abstract:

The present text is a re-edition of Volume I of Formal Grammars in
Linguistics and Psycholinguistics
, a three-volume work published in
1974. This volume is an entirely self-contained introduction to the theory
of formal grammars and automata, which hasn't lost any of its relevance. Of
course, major new developments have seen the light since this introduction
was first published, but it still provides the indispensible basic notions
from which later work proceeded. The author's reasons for writing this text
are still relevant: an introduction that does not suppose an acquaintance
with sophisticated mathematical theories and methods, that is intended
specifically for linguists and psycholinguists (thus including such topics
as learnability and probabilistic grammars), and that provides students of
language with a reference text for the basic notions in the theory of
formal grammars and automata, as they keep being referred to in linguistic
and psycholinguistic publications; the subject index of this introduction
can be used to find definitions of a wide range of technical terms. An
appendix has been added with further references to some of the core new
developments since this book originally appeared.

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics
