Title: Anaphora Processing
Subtitle: Linguistic, cognitive and computational modelling
Edited By: António Branco
Anthony Mark McEnery
Ruslan Mitkov
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CILT%20263
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 263
Description:

Anaphora is a central topic in the study of natural language and has long been the object of research in a wide range of disciplines. The correct interpretation of anaphora has also become increasingly important for real-world natural language processing applications, including machine translation, automatic abstracting, information extraction and question answering.

This volume provides a unique overview of the processing of anaphora from a multi- and inter-disciplinary angle. It will be of interest and practical use to readers from fields as diverse as theoretical linguistics, corpus linguistics, computational linguistics, computer science, natural language processing, artificial intelligence, human language technology, psycholinguistics, cognitive science and translation studies.

The readership includes but is not limited to university lecturers, researchers, postgraduate and senior undergraduate students.
