The Indo-European Controversy: Facts and Fallacies in Historical Linguistics

By Asya Pereltsvaig and Martin W. Lewis

This book "asserts that the origin and spread of languages must be examined primarily through the time-tested techniques of linguistic analysis, rather than those of evolutionary biology" and "defends traditional practices in historical linguistics while remaining open to new techniques, including computational methods" and "will appeal to readers interested in world history and world geography."


Book Information

   

Title: Challenges in Natural Language Processing
Edited By: Ralph M. Weischedel
Series Title: Studies in Natural Language Processing
Description:

Although natural language processing has come far, the technology has not
achieved a major impact on society. Is this because of some fundamental
limitation that cannot be overcome? Or because there has not been enough
time to refine and apply theoretical work already done? Editors Madeleine
Bates and Ralph Weischedel believe it is neither; they feel that several
critical issues have never been adequately addressed in either theoretical
or applied work, and they have invited capable researchers in the field to
do that in Challenges in Natural Language Processing. This volume will be
of interest to researchers of computational linguistics in academic and
non-academic settings and to graduate students in computational
linguistics, artificial intelligence and linguistics.
