The Handbook of Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing provides a comprehensive overview of the concepts, methodologies, and applications being undertaken today in computational linguistics and natural language processing.
The volume begins with an introduction to the major theoretical issues in these fields, as well as the central engineering applications that the work has produced. Also included is a detailed synopsis of the most cutting edge research. The major developments in this dynamic field are presented in an accessible way that explains the close connection between scientific understanding of the computational properties of natural language and the creation of effective language technologies.
The Handbook serves as an invaluable state-of-the-art reference source for computational linguists and software engineers developing natural language applications in industrial research and development labs of software companies, as well as for graduate students and researchers in computer science, linguistics, psychology, philosophy, and mathematics working within computational linguistics.
