Book Information


Title: Computational and Quantitative Studies
Written By: Michael A. K. Halliday
Jonathan J. Webster

In the course of his career, Professor Halliday has continued to address
the issue of the application of linguistic scholarship for computational
and quantitative studies. The sixth volume in the collected works of
Professor M. A. K. Halliday includes works that span the last five decades,
covering such topics as machine translation: the early years; and
probabilistic grammar. The last section of this volume includes discussion
of recent collaborative efforts bringing together those working in systemic
functional grammar, fuzzy logic, and intelligent computing, engaging in
what Halliday refers to as computing with meaning.

The Collected Works of M. A. K. Halliday is a series that brings together
Halliday's publications in many branches of linguistics, both theoretical
and applied (a distinction which he himself rejects), including grammar and
semantics, discourse analysis and stylistics, phonology, sociolinguistics,
computational linguistics, language education, and child language development.
