Language, Literacy, and Technology

By Richard Kern

"In this book, Richard Kern explores how technology matters to language and the ways in which we use it. Kern reveals how material, social and individual resources interact in the design of textual meaning, and how that interaction plays out across contexts of communication, different situations of technological mediation, and different moments in time."

Title: Computational Approaches to Morphology and Syntax
Written By: Brian Roark
Richard W Sproat
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199274789
Description:

The book will appeal to scholars and advanced students of morphology,
syntax, computational linguistics and natural language processing (NLP). It
provides a critical and practical guide to computational techniques for
handling morphological and syntactic phenomena, showing how these
techniques have been used and modified in practice.

The authors discuss the nature and uses of syntactic parsers and examine
the problems and opportunities of parsing algorithms for finite-state,
context-free and various context-sensitive grammars. They relate approaches
for describing syntax and morphology to formal mechanisms and algorithms,
and present well-motivated approaches for augmenting grammars with weights
or probabilities.
