With the first publication of this book in 1988, the centrality of the
lexicon in language research was becoming increasingly apparent and the use
of relational models of the lexicon had been the particular focus of
research in a variety of disciplines since the early 1980s. This
convergence of approach made the present collection especially welcome for
bringing together reports of theoretical developments and applications in
relational semantics in computer science, linguistics, cognitive science,
anthropology and industrial research. It explains in detail some important
applications of relational models to the construction of natural language
interfaces, the building of thesauri for bibliographic information
retrieval systems and the compilation of terminology banks for machine
translation systems. Relational Models of the Lexicon not only provides an
invaluable survey of research in relational semantics, but offers a
stimulus for potential research advances in semantics, natural language
processing and knowledge representation.
