Handbook for Language Engineers

There is an overwhelming amount of language data on the Internet that needs to be searched, categorized, or processed—making the role of linguistics in the design of information systems a critical one. This book is a guide for linguists hoping to enter the language-processing field, as it assembles distinguished computational linguists from academia, research centers, and business to discuss how linguists can solve practical problems and improve business efficiency. Covering topics from speech recognition to web language resources, this collection will be of great value to both linguists entering the field and businesses hoping to implement linguistics-based solutions.
