Back cover copy

Offering an inquiry into the nature of language from the perspective of computing, Computers and Human Language synthesizes recent research in linguistics, computer science, and experimental psychology as it explores the major computational approaches to language. Among the topics considered are the computationally tractable, symbolic basis of language, the mental lexicon as repository of knowledge, the elegantly recursive structure of syntax, and the compositional nature of meanings, together with the segmentation, focus, and hierarchical construction of extended discourse.show more
