Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This compilation of papers by Yorick Wilks must be recommended to every library specialised in machine translation, computational linguistics, or artificial intelligence. . In sum, all the eleven compiled papers exude Yorick Wilks' splendid and talented contributions to the major issues of language technology and machine translation during the three vital decades extending from 1964 to 1997." (Joseba Abaitua, Machine Translation, Vol. 22, 2008)
