Book Information


Title: Text Resources and Lexical Knowledge
Subtitle: Selected Papers from the 9th Conference on Natural Language Processing KONVENS 2008
Edited By: Angelika Storrer
Alexander Geyken
Alexander Siebert
Kay-Michael W├╝rzner
Series Title: Text, Translation, Computational Processing [TTCP] 8

This book contains selected state-of-the-art contributions to the 9th
conference on natural language processing, KONVENS 2008 (Konferenz zur
Verarbeitung nat├╝rlicher Sprache), with the central theme: text resources
and lexical knowledge. The collection is unique in its placement of focus
on the interaction between both of the above-mentioned fields, illustrating
in particular the importance of methods in corpus linguistics for building
lexical resources on the one hand, and the relevance of lexical resources
for the analysis of and intelligent search methods for text corpora on the
other. The selected articles all present novel approaches to one of three
different research areas which in turn define the three parts of the book:

* Techniques and models for the linguistic analysis of text resources:
contributions from computational linguistics
* Methods and tools for the acquisition of lexical knowledge from digitized
and linguistically annotated text resources
* Approaches to the representation of lexical knowledge in digital media
for various purposes.
