Preposition Placement in English: A Usage-Based Approach

By Thomas Hoffmann

This is the first study that empirically investigates preposition placement across all clause types. The study compares first-language (British English) and second-language (Kenyan English) data and will therefore appeal to readers interested in world Englishes. Over 100 authentic corpus examples are discussed in the text, which will appeal to those who want to see 'real data'

Title: An Introduction to Language Processing with Perl and Prolog
Subtitle: An outline of theories, implementation, and application with special consideration of English, French, and German
Written By: Pierre Nugues
URL: http://www.springer.com/3-540-25031-X
Series Title: Cognitive Technologies
Description:

The areas of natural language processing and computational linguistics have
continued to grow in recent years, driven by the demand to automatically
process text and spoken data. With the processing power and techniques now
available, research is scaling up from lab prototypes to real-world, proven
applications.

This book teaches the principles of natural language processing, first
covering linguistics issues such as encoding, entropy, and annotation
schemes; defining words, tokens and parts of speech; and morphology. It
then details the language-processing functions involved, including
part-of-speech tagging using rules and stochastic techniques; using Prolog
to write phase-structure grammars; parsing techniques and syntactic
formalisms; semantics, predicate logic and lexical semantics; and analysis
of discourse, and applications in dialog systems. The key feature of the
book is the author's hands-on approach throughout, with extensive
exercises, sample code in Prolog and Perl, and a detailed introduction to
Prolog. The reader is supported with a companion website that contains
teaching slides, programs, and additional material.

The book is suitable for researchers and students of natural language
processing and computational linguistics.
