Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Trends in Parsing Technology
Subtitle: Dependency Parsing, Domain Adaptation, and Deep Parsing
Edited By: Harry C Bunt

Series Title: Text, Speech and Language Technology
Description:

Parsing technology is a central area of research in the automatic
processing of human language. It is concerned with the decomposition of
complex structures into their constituent parts, in particular with the
methods, the tools and the software to parse automatically. Parsers are
used in many application areas, such as information extraction from free
text or speech, question answering, speech recognition and understanding,
recommender systems, machine translation, and automatic summarization. New
developments in the area of parsing technology are thus widely applicable.

This book collects contributions from leading researchers in the area of
natural language processing technology, describing their recent work and a
range of new techniques and results. The book presents a state-of-the-art
overview of current research in parsing technologies with a focus on three
important themes in the field today: dependency parsing, domain adaptation,
and deep parsing.

This book is the fourth in a line of such collections, and its breadth of
coverage should make it suitable both as an overview of the state of the
field for graduate students, and as a reference for established researchers
in Computational Linguistics, Artificial Intelligence, Computer Science,
Language Engineering, Information Science, and Cognitive Science. It will
also be of interest to designers, developers, and advanced users of natural
language processing systems, including applications such as spoken
dialogue, text mining, multimodal human-computer interaction, and semantic
web technology.
