Title: Linguistics in the Twenty First Century
Edited By: Eloína Miyares Bermúdez
Leonel Ruiz Miyares
Description:

This book is the result of the cooperation between Cambridge Scholar Press
and the Centre for Applied Linguistics of the Ministry of Science,
Technology and the Environment of Santiago de Cuba. The present volume is a
peer-reviewed selection from the papers written in English that were
presented at the 9th International Symposium on Social Communication
(Santiago de Cuba, January 24-28, 2005).

The symposia are held by the Santiago-based institution every two years.
Since their inception in 1987, these meetings have provided an excellent
opportunity for scientific exchange among scholars from all continents,
through the presentation of papers, keynote speeches, and workshops
focusing on the most current and recent results of linguistics and other
related disciplines that are also invited to the event.

This volume includes 34 papers subdivided in eight sections: General
Linguistics (8), Phonetics (5), Lexicology (3), Corpus Linguistics (2),
Natural Language Processing (9), Foreign Languages (3), Mass Media (2) and
Art, Ethnology and Folklore (2).

These articles provide an excellent overview of the current state of
research from around the world. Scholars came from Australia, Austria,
Belgium, Canada, China, Cuba, Spain, United States, France, Greek, Holland,
Hungary, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal and the
United Kingdom.

It is important to highlight the presence in this book of papers by some of
the world’s leading researchers in linguistics, including Prof. Dr. Anton
Nijholt, from Twente University, Enschede, The Netherlands; Prof. Dr.
Nicoletta Calzolari, director of the prestigious Institute of Computational
Linguistics of Pisa, Italy; Prof. Dr. Michael Zock, from the Scientific
Research Center of France; Prof. Dr. Dieter Fensel, from the Digital
Enterprise Research Institute of Leopold-Franzens University, Innsbruck,
Austria; Prof Dr. Gloria Corpas Pastor from the University of Malaga,
Spain; and the doctors Iñaki Alegria, Xabier Arregi and Xabier Artola, from
the IXA Group of the Basque Country University.
