Offers a state-of-the-art overview of computational semantics written by leading researchers in the field
Presents the latest developments in methods and tools for the automatic computation of the content of natural language expressions
Includes discussions of WordNet, VerbNet, semantically annotated corpora and new methodologies for their construction as well as new statistical methods such as the application of distributional semantics
This book is a collection of papers by leading researchers in computational semantics. It presents a state-of-the-art overview of recent and current research in computational semantics, including descriptions of new methods for constructing and improving resources for semantic computation, such as WordNet, VerbNet, and semantically annotated corpora. It also presents new statistical methods in semantic computation, such as the application of distributional semantics in the compositional calculation of sentence meanings.
Computing the meaning of sentences, texts, and spoken or texted dialogue is the ultimate challenge in natural language processing, and the key to a wide range of exciting applications. The breadth and depth of coverage of this book makes it suitable as a reference and overview of the state of the field for researchers in Computational Linguistics, Semantics, Computer Science, Cognitive Science, and Artificial Intelligence.
