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."


Book Information

   

Title: Computational Linguistics and Formal Semantics
Edited By: Michael Rosner
Roderick Johnson
Series Title: Studies in Natural Language Processing
Description:

This collection takes the exciting step of examining natural language
phenomena from the perspectives of both computational linguistics and
formal semantics. Computational linguistics has until now been primarily
concerned with the construction of computational models for handling the
complexities of linguistic form, but has not tackled the questions of
representing or computing meaning. Formal semantics, on the other hand, has
attempted to account for the relations between forms and meanings, without
necessarily attending to computational concerns. Computational Linguistics
and Formal Semantics introduces the reader to the two disciplines and
considers the prospects for the more unified and comprehensive
computational theory of language that might obtain from their amalgamation.
