  • Computational Dependency Theoryby K. Gerdes; E. Hajicová; L. Wanner

    IOS Press 2013; US$ 174.00

    Dependencies ? directed labeled graph structures representing hierarchical relations between morphemes, words, and semantic units ? are the standard representation in many fields of computational linguistics. The linguistic significance of these structures often remains vague, however, and those working in the field stress the need for the development... more...

  • Lying at the Semantics-Pragmatics Interfaceby Jörg Meibauer

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    While lying has been a topic in the philosophy of language, there has been a lack of genuine linguistic analysis of lying. Exploring lying at the semantics-pragmatics interface, this book takes a contextualist stand by arguing that untruthful implicatures and presuppositions are part of the total signification of the act of lying. more...

  • Language Processing and Grammarsby Brian Nolan; Carlos Periñán-Pascual

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

    This paper investigates the notion of low-level situational cognitive model, its role in linguistic description and its possible computational treatment in the knowledge base FunGramKB. Low-level situational models are exploited metonymically to produce situation-based implicatures. When such inferences become stably associated with a formal pattern,... more...

  • Diskurs ? interdisziplinärby Heidrun Kämper; Ingo H. Warnke

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 168.00

    What happens when philosophers and sociologists, historians, literary scholars, and linguists try to engage in discourse? The essays in this volume examine this question and describe the structure of discourses as instances of meaning-production based on a common basic understanding of ?discourse? from a theoretical, methodological, and... more...

  • Literary Detective Work on the Computerby Michael P. Oakes

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 149.00

    Computational linguistics can be used to uncover mysteries in text which are not always obvious to visual inspection. For example, the computer analysis of writing style can show who might be the true author of a text in cases of disputed authorship or suspected plagiarism. The theoretical background to authorship attribution is presented in a step... more...

  • Pragmatic Development in First Language Acquisitionby Danielle Matthews

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2014; US$ 158.00

    This chapter highlights the growing need and importance of assessing young children’s pragmatic language abilities given such factors as the increasing recognition of disproportionate difficulties in pragmatics among different clinical groups, the rise of more usage-based and functional approaches to language acquisition and competence, and evidence... more...

  • Was tun mit dem Verb?by Birgit Mesch; Björn Rothstein

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 140.00

    What is to be done with the verb? Parts of speech, and the verb in particular, have always been a key focus of school grammar instruction, even though there has never been a canonical analysis of the German verb in academic linguistics or language didactics. This compendium suggests productive approaches for exploiting the grammatical... more...

  • An Introduction to Corpus Linguisticsby Graeme Kennedy

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 69.95

    The use of large, computerized bodies of text for linguistic analysis and description has emerged in recent years as one of the most significant and rapidly-developing fields of activity in the study of language. This book provides a comprehensive introduction and guide to Corpus Linguistics. All aspects of the field are explored, from the various... more...

  • Automatic Text Summarizationby Juan-Manuel Torres-Moreno

    Wiley 2014; US$ 135.00

    Textual information in the form of digital documents quickly accumulates to create huge amounts of data. The majority of these documents are unstructured: it is unrestricted text and has not been organized into traditional databases. Processing documents is therefore a perfunctory task, mostly due to a lack of standards. It has thus become extremely... more...
