This book "supplies a vocabulary of English words and idiomatic phrases 'arranged … according to the ideas which they express'. The thesaurus, continually expanded and updated, has always remained in print, but this reissued first edition shows the impressive breadth of Roget's own knowledge and interests."
This volume draws the attention to many specific challenges of multilingual processing within the European Union especially after the recent successive enlargement. Most languages considered are not only "less resourced" in terms of processing tools and training data but have also features which are different from the well known international language pairs.
The 16 contributions address specific problems and solutions for languages from south-eastern and central Europe in the context of multilingual communication, translation and information retrieval.
