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

The volume begins with an introduction to the major theoretical issues inthese fields, as well as the central engineering applications that the work hasproduced. Also included is a detailed synopsis of the most cutting edgeresearch. The major developments in this dynamic field are presented in anaccessible way that explains the close connection between scientificunderstanding of the computational properties of natural language and thecreation of effective language technologies.

The Handbook serves as an invaluable state-of-the-art reference source forcomputational linguists and software engineers developing natural languageapplications in industrial research and development labs of softwarecompanies, as well as for graduate students and researchers in computerscience, linguistics, psychology, philosophy, and mathematics working withincomputational linguistics.
