Review quote

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 the comprehensive 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 priced student's edition to make the OHCL affordable to the wide audience it definitely deserves. * Linguist List * A highly stimulating and impressive book which should be found in every library and every linguistics department. I strongly recommend it. * International Journal of Lexicography *show more
