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: Arabic Computational Morphology
Subtitle: Knowledge-based and Empirical Methods
Edited By: Abdelhadi Soudi
Antal P van den Bosch

URL: http://www.springer.com/978-1-4020-6045-8
Series Title: Text, Speech and Language Technology
Description:

The morphology of Arabic poses special challenges to computational natural
language processing systems. The exceptional degree of ambiguity in the
writing system, the rich morphology, and the highly complex word formation
process of roots and patterns all contribute to making computational
approaches to Arabic very challenging. Indeed many computational linguists
across the world have taken up this challenge over time, and many of the
researchers with a track record in this research area have contributed to
this book.

The book's subtitle aims to reflect that widely different computational
approaches to the Arabic morphological system have been proposed. These
accounts fall into two main paradigms: the knowledge-based and the
empirical. Since morphological knowledge plays an essential role in any
higher-level understanding and processing of Arabic text, the book also
features a part on the role of Arabic morphology in larger applications,
i.e. Information Retrieval (IR) and Machine Translation (MT).
