  • Referenceby Barbara Abbott

    Oxford University Press 2010; US$ 49.99

    This book introduces the most important problems of reference and considers the solutions that have been proposed to explain them. Reference is at the centre of debate among linguists and philosophers and, as Barbara Abbott shows, this has been the case for centuries. She begins by examining the basic issue of how far reference is a two place (words-world)... more...

  • Word Sense Disambiguationby Eneko Agirre; Philip Edmonds

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 59.99

    Graeme Hirst University of Toronto Of the many kinds of ambiguity in language, the two that have received the most attention in computational linguistics are those of word senses and those of syntactic structure, and the reasons for this are clear: these ambiguities are overt, their resolution is seemingly essential for any prac- cal application, and... more...

This is a very... more...

    In a number of languages, the speaker must specify the evidence for every statement whether seen, or heard, or inferred from indirect evidence, or learnt from someone else.
