Abstract:

Language is one of the most challenging issues that remains to be explained
from the physiological and psychological points of view. As a complex
system, its formal modelling and simulation present important difficulties.
Models proposed up to now have not been able to give either a coherent
explanation of natural language or a satisfactory computational model for
the processing of natural language. To investigate natural language, we
need to cross traditional academic boundaries in order to solve the
different problems related to language. This book is an attempt to connect
and integrate several academic disciplines and technologies in the pursuit
of a common task: the study of language. The main goal of the book is to
boost the interchange of knowledge and viewpoints between specialists who,
working on linguistics, biology or computation, have an interest in
bringing their methods together in order to provide innovative and
challenging tools and formalisms to approach and improve theories and
models on languages. The subject of this book will attract researchers from
many fields who are interested in natural or artificial languages and want
to enrich their scientific research with theories, methods and ideas coming
from different disciplines. People dealing with linguistics, computer
science, formal language theory and biology may find in this book new and
challenging ideas.
