Due to the recent availability of large bodies of text and speech in
electronic form, data-based research of all kinds has increased
dramatically in areas such as computational linguistics and language
engineering (especially corpus-based linguistics), speech, humanities
computing, psycho-linguistics, and information retrieval. This series
is intended to explore the methodologies and technologies that are
emerging as a result of this work. In addition, while each of these
disciplines has developed methodologies appropriate to its particular
problem area, there is emerging a clearly defined set of
technologies and methodologies common to all areas of research
involving large quantities of electronic data. The series will be
particularly concerned with methodologies and technologies with either
actual or potantial applicability to other areas. The topics covered
by the series include but are not limited to:

 o encoding and representation of text and speech
 o lexical statistics and quantitative word studies
 o computational lexicography
 o morphological analysis and part-of-speech tagging
 o grammars and parsing technologies
 o automated content and thematic analysis
 o text databases and retrieval
 o document analysis, automatic indexing and abstracting
 o stylometry and computerized authorship discrimination
 o text generation
 o message understanding
 o text-to-speech and dictation systems
 o speech synthesis and speech recognition
 o phonological and prosodic analysis

The series will contain several different types of books, including:

 o methodologies, which survey major methodological approaches in a given
 domain. Many of the methodologies emerging for text-based work have
 never been considered collectively or comprehensively, and there is a
 serious need for books which provide an overview of the important
 approaches to certain problem areas.

 o advanced research topics, which treat in depth specific areas
 of interest or projects at the state of the art. This type of book will
 describe leading edge research on specific topics, whose methodologies
 may have only just begun to develop.

 o tutorials, which provide a general introduction to a particular topic.
 Because data-based research has developed so rapidly in recent years,
 there is a large number of researchers who are unfamiliar with basic
 concepts and approaches. In addition, applicable methodologies which
 may be well-developed within one discipline are often completely
 unknwon to researchers in another discipline.

Supplementary materials such as software, demonstrations, program
libraries, etc. in appropriate forms (diskettes, web sites, etc.) will be
included where appropriate.
