Foundations of Computational Linguistics: Human-Computer Communication in Natural Language
The central task of a future-oriented computational linguistics is the development of cognitive machines which humans can freely talk with in their respective natural language. In the long run, this task will ensure the development of a functional theory of language, an objective method of verification,and a wide range of practical applications. Natural communication requires not only verbal processing, but also non-verbal perception and action. Therefore the content of this textbook is organized as a theory of language for the construction of talking robots. The main topic is the mechanism of natural language communication in both the speaker and the hearer.
The Handbook of Natural Language Processing, Second Edition presents practical tools and techniques for implementing natural language processing in computer systems.

This book provides a systematic study of three foundational issues in the semantics of natural language that have been relatively neglected in the past few decades. Focuses on the formal characterization of intensions, the nature of an adequate type system for natural language semantics, and the formal power of the semantic representation language. Proposes a theory that offers a promising framework for developing a computational semantic system sufficiently expressive to capture the properties of natural language meaning while remaining computationally tractable.
