This book "fills the unquestionable need for a comprehensive and up-to-date handbook on the fast-developing field of pragmatics" and "includes contributions from many of the principal figures in a wide variety of fields of pragmatic research as well as some up-and-coming pragmatists."
Data-Oriented Parsing (DOP) is one of the leading paradigms in Statistical Natural Language Processing. In this volume, a collection of computational linguists offers a state-of-the-art overview of DOP suitable for students and researchers in natural language processing and speech recognition as well as computational linguistics.
This handbook begins with the theoretical background of DOP and introduces the various algorithms used in DOP as well as in other probabilistic grammar models. After surveying extensions to the basic DOP model, this volume concludes with a close study of some applications that use DOP as a backbone.
