Title: The Handbook of Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing
URL: http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-1405155817.html
Series Title: Blackwell Handbooks in Linguistics
Description:

The Handbook of Computational Linguistics and Natural Language
Processing provides a comprehensive overview of the concepts,
methodologies, and applications being undertaken today in computational
linguistics and natural language processing.

The volume begins with an introduction to the major theoretical issues in
these fields, as well as the central engineering applications that the work has
produced. Also included is a detailed synopsis of the most cutting edge
research. The major developments in this dynamic field are presented in an
accessible way that explains the close connection between scientific
understanding of the computational properties of natural language and the
creation of effective language technologies.

The Handbook serves as an invaluable state-of-the-art reference source for
computational linguists and software engineers developing natural language
applications in industrial research and development labs of software
companies, as well as for graduate students and researchers in computer
science, linguistics, psychology, philosophy, and mathematics working within
computational linguistics.
