Series Title: Quantitative Linguistics 62
Description:

The collection contains more than 60 original papers and reflects current
research topics in linguistics and text analysis. Most of the papers
present recent results of empirical quantitative investigations; others
focus on methodological issues, whereas some of them are of a more
theoretical, systems-theoretical/semiotic character. Finally, a number of
contributions form typical integrative deductive-inductive studies. The
volume is a valuable source of information about the current
state-of-the-art in quantitative linguistic research, presented by renowned
representatives of the field.
