Title: Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing III
Subtitle: Selected papers from RANLP 2003
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CILT%20260
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 260
Description:

This volume brings together revised versions of a selection of papers presented at the 2003 International Conference on "Recent Advances in
Natural Language Processing".

A wide range of topics is covered in the volume: semantics, dialog, summarization, anaphora resolution, shallow parsing, morphology, part-of-speech tagging, named entity, question answering, word sense disambiguation, information extraction. Various 'state-of-the-art' techniques are explored: finite state processing, machine learning (support vector machines, maximum entropy, decision trees, memory-based learning, inductive logic programming, transformation-based learning, perceptions), latent semantic analysis, constraint programming. The papers address different languages (Arabic, English, German, Slavic languages) and use different linguistic frameworks (HPSG, LFG, constraint-based DCG).

This book will be of interest to those who work in computational linguistics, corpus linguistics, human language technology, translation studies, cognitive science, psycholinguistics, artificial intelligence, and informatics.
