Linguistic Form and Its Computation

This volume presents results of the Collaborative Research Center "Linguistic Foundations for Computational Linguistics" at the Universities of Stuttgart and Tubingen, whose goal has been to foster interaction between theoretical and computational linguistics. The papers here address topics including syntax, syntax-semantics interface, syntax-pragmatics interface, discourse, methods for lexicon induction, and the challenges of ambiguity.
