Thirty-eight chapters, comissioned from experts all over the world, describe major concepts, methods, and applications in computational linguistics. Part I, Linguistic Fundamentals, provides an overview of the field suitable for senior undergraduates and non-specialists from other fields oflinguistics and related disciplines. Part II describes current tasks, techniques, and tools in Natural Language Processing and aims to meet the needs of post-doctoral workers and others embarking on computational language research. Part III surveys current applications.This book is a state-of-the-art reference to one of the most active and productive fields in linguistics. It will be of interest and practical use to a wide range of linguists, as well as to researchers in such fields as informatics, artificial intelligence, language engineering, and cognitivescience.
Ruslan Mitkov is Professor of Computational Linguistics and Language Engineering at the University of Wolverhampton and Research Professor at the Institute of Mathematics, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. He has held research positions at CNRS, the University of Science Malaysia, the Korean Advanced Institute of Science, and the Univers...

Editorial Reviews

`Review from previous edition 'An excellent reference book that provides a wealth of information and enables the experienced reader to enter quickly into new subject areas of CL {computational linguistics] and NLP [natural language processing] .... The particular strengths of the OHCL are thecomprehensive computation-oriented discussion of the fundamental linguistic issues and the broad coverage of NLP methods and resources. It thus extensively accounts for the theoretical and methodological backgrounds of CL and NLP.... The publisher should consider issuing a moderately pricedstudents' edition to make the OHCL affordable to the wide audience it definitely deserves.''LinguistList
