Book Information

   

Title: Computational Semantics with Functional Programming
Description:

Computational semantics is the art and science of computing meaning in natural
language. The meaning of a sentence is derived from the meanings of the
individual words in it, and this process can be made so precise that it can be
implemented on a computer. Designed for students of linguistics, computer
science, logic and philosophy, this comprehensive text shows how to compute
meaning using the functional programming language Haskell. It deals with both
denotational meaning (where meaning comes from knowing the conditions of
truth in situations), and operational meaning (where meaning is an
instruction for
performing cognitive action). Including a discussion of recent developments in
logic, it will be invaluable to linguistics students wanting to apply logic
to their
studies, logic students wishing to learn how their subject can be applied to
linguistics, and functional programmers interested in natural language
processing as a new application area.
