Natural LanguageUnderstanding gives the same balanced coverage of syntax, semantics, and discourse, and offers a uniform framework based onfeature-based context-free grammars and chart parsers used forsyntactic and semantic processing. Thorough treatment of issues indiscourse and context-dependent interpretation is also provided. Inaddition, this title offers coverage of two entirely new subjectareas. First, the text features a new chapter onstatistically-based methods using large corpora. Second, itincludes an appendix on speech recognition and spoken languageunderstanding. Also, the information on semantics that was coveredin the first edition has been largely expanded in this edition toinclude an emphasis on compositional interpretation.
