Title: Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing
Edited By: Ruslan Mitkov
Nicolas Nicolov
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 136
Description:

This volume is based on contributions from the First International Conference on "Recent Advances in Natural Language Processing" (RANLP'95) held in Tzigov Chark, Bulgaria, 14-16 September 1995. Of the 48 papers presented at RANLP'95, the best (revised) papers have been selected for this book, in the hope that they reflect the most significant and promising trends (and latest successful results) in NLP. The book is organized thematically and the contributions are grouped according to the traditional topics found in NLP: morphology, syntax, grammars, parsing, semantics, discourse, grammars, generation, machine translation, corpus processing and multimedia. This book will be of interest to researchers, lecturers and graduate students interested in Natural Language Processing and more specifically to those who work in Computational Linguistics, Corpus Linguistics and Machine Translation.
