The Indo-European Controversy: Facts and Fallacies in Historical Linguistics

By Asya Pereltsvaig and Martin W. Lewis

This book "asserts that the origin and spread of languages must be examined primarily through the time-tested techniques of linguistic analysis, rather than those of evolutionary biology" and "defends traditional practices in historical linguistics while remaining open to new techniques, including computational methods" and "will appeal to readers interested in world history and world geography."

Title: Applications of Finite-State Language Processing
Subtitle: Selected Papers from the 2008 International NooJ Conference
Edited By: Tamás Váradi
Judit Kuti
Max Silberztein
Description:

NooJ is both a corpus processing tool and a linguistic development
environment: it allows linguists to formalize several levels of linguistic
phenomena: orthography and spelling, lexicons for simple words, multiword
units and frozen expressions, inflectional, derivational and productive
morphology, local, structural syntax and transformational syntax. For each
of these levels, NooJ provides linguists with one or more formal tools
specifically designed to facilitate the description of each phenomenon, as
well as parsing tools designed to be as computationally efficient as
possible. This approach distinguishes NooJ from most computational
linguistic tools, which provide a single formalism that should describe
everything. As a corpus processing tool, NooJ allows users to apply
sophisticated linguistic queries to large corpora in order to build indices
and concordances, annotate texts automatically, perform statistical
analyses, etc.

NooJ is freely available and linguistic modules can already be downloaded
for Acadian, Arabic, Armenian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese, Croatian,
French, English, German, Hebrew, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Polish,
Portuguese, Spanish and Turkish.


The present volume contains papers from the 2008 International NooJ
conference held between 08.06.2008. and 10.06.2008. in Budapest. While the
focus of the Budapest conference was on making NooJ compatible with other
applications, the papers vary with respect to whether they regard NLP as a
research goal or as a tool. However, they all present a slightly different
problem either in the field of NLP, or in one that can be solved using NLP,
or present a new development in the tool itself. The range of problems
dealt with in the volume is quite varied, which will hopefully enable the
readers to find contributions that are relevant to their field of interest.
