It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Treebanks
Subtitle: Building and Using Parsed Corpora
Edited By: Anne Abeillé
Series Title: Text, Speech and Language Technology 20

Linguists and engineers in Natural Language Processing tend to use electronic corpora more and more. Most research has long been limited to raw (unannotated) texts or to tagged texts (annotated with parts of speech only), but these approaches suffer from a word by word perspective. A new line of research involves corpora with richer annotations such as clauses and major constituents, grammatical functions and dependency links. The first parsed corpora were the English Lancaster treebank and Penn Treebank. New ones have recently been developed for other languages.
This book: + provides a state of the art on work being done with parsed corpora; + gathers 21 papers on building and using parsed corpora raising many relevant questions; + deals with a variety of languages and a variety of corpora; + is for those working in linguistics, computational linguistics, natural language, syntax, and grammar.
