This volume investigates the complicated relationship between grammar, computation, and meaning in natural languages. It details conditions under which meaning-driven processing of natural language is feasible, discusses an operational and accessible implementation of the grammatical cycle for Dutch, and offers analyses of a number of further conjectures about constituency and entailment in natural language.
Ruth Kempson, King’s College London
“This book is unique in my experience in giving this amount of detail to setting out the Dutch case with respect to, separately, a parser and generator.”
