Book Information

   

Title: Flexible Semantics for Reinterpretation Phenomena
Written By: Markus Egg
Series Title: Studies in Computational Linguistics
Description:

Deriving the correct meaning of such colloquial expressions as "I am parked
out back" requires a unique interaction of knowledge about the world with a
person's natural language tools, e.g., "I have a car that is parked in the
back," and not the wrong literal one. In this volume, Markus Egg examines
how natural language rules and world knowledge work together to produce
correct understandings of expressions that cannot be fully understood
through literal reading. An in-depth and exciting work on semantics and
natural language, this volume will be essential reading for scholars in
computational linguistics.
