This book "supplies a vocabulary of English words and idiomatic phrases 'arranged … according to the ideas which they express'. The thesaurus, continually expanded and updated, has always remained in print, but this reissued first edition shows the impressive breadth of Roget's own knowledge and interests."
This volume represents an exploration of the notion that the principles of grammatical well-formedness and the principles of language processing are interdependent. They deal with the nature of syntactic structure and grammars for syntax, with strategies for parsing and generation, and with aspects of phonological structure and grammars for phonology. Some of the papers in this collection overlap two or more areas, and demonstrate the importance of integrating concepts from the theories of grammar and computation.
