Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Advanced Programming in PROLOG for Computational Linguistics and Artificial Intelligence
Written By: Rodrigue Sabin Mompelat
Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Computational Linguistics 01
Description:

Prolog is a programming language particularly suitable for developing
programs in research areas such as corpus linguistics, machine translation,
concordance compilation, testing of grammars and many other areas where
statistical counts and analyses are required. We will restrict our
linguistic and computational techniques to the elaboration of frequency
lists and indexes on the basis of the English and Danish languages.

Prolog is also suitable for solving problems concerned with the
computerized implementation of intelligent human behaviour such as
presentation of knowledge, teaching, learning, association, planning,
explaining, acquisition of language etc. We will examine powerful
computational tools, the automata, which can analyse, recognize and
generate languages, and whose representation by network can apply to many
contexts.

Moreover, Prolog has intrinsic qualities that make its success. It enables
to construct databases and their corresponding management system. For that
matter, we will develop not only different kinds of procedures of
manipulation of information in the databases, but also a module-based
database management system which will have to be reliable, robust and
user-friendly.

Our approach of Prolog endeavours to make the user capable of using and
building systems such as natural language interfaces, terminology and
dictionary database or text-processing programs of great machine-readable
text corpora.
