Computational Linguistics in the Netherlands 1997
The subjects found in this book represent a cross-section of current research topics in computational linguistics and are related to the fields of grammatical description, statistical modelling and natural language technology. Grammatical description is included in the form of work on HPSG, both the application of HPSG and investigation of the structure of HPSG itself. Another popular methodology, statistical modelling, is amply present as well: there are papers on the use of statistical models in such varied areas as language evolution, phonotactics, index term identification and bilingual dictionary creation. Finally, as can also be seen from the latter two subjects, computational linguistics is closely related to natural language technology systems and resources. This is shown by papers on document analysis, controlled languages, text generation and lexicon acquisition.
