Book Information


Title: New Developments in Parsing Technology
Edited By: Harry C Bunt
John Carroll
Giorgio Satta
Series Title: Text, Speech and Language Technology 23

Parsing can be defined as the decomposition of complex structures into
their constituent parts, and parsing technology as the methods, the tools
and the software to parse automatically. Parsing is a central area of
research in the automatic processing of human language. Parsers are being
used in many application areas, for example question answering, extraction
of information from text, speech recognition and understanding, and machine
translation. New developments in parsing technology are thus widely

This book contains contributions from many of today's leading researchers
in the area of natural language parsing technology. The contributors
describe their most recent work and a diverse range of techniques and
results. This collection provides an excellent picture of the current state
of affairs in this area. This volume is the third in a line of such
collections, and its breadth of coverage should make it suitable both as an
overview of the current state of the field for graduate students, and as a
reference for established researchers.

This volume is of specific interest to researchers, advanced undergraduate
students, graduate students, and teachers in the following areas:
Computational Linguistics, Artificial Intelligence, Computer Science,
Language Engineering, Information Science, and Cognitive Science. It will
also be of interest to designers, developers, and advanced users of natural
language processing software and systems, including applications such as
machine translation, information extraction, spoken dialogue, multimodal
human-computer interaction, text mining, and semantic web technology.
