ANNOUNCING A NEW TITLE FROM NOVA SCIENCE PUBLISHERS, INC

COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTIC TEXT PROCESSING:
Logical Form,Semantic Interpretation, Discourse Relations and Question
Answering

RODOLFO DELMONTE
(Dipartimento Scienze del Linguaggio, Univ. Ca' Foscari, Venezia, Italy)

2007. ISBN: 1-60021-700-1. $89.00 Hardcover

The topic of this book is the theoretical foundations of a theory LSLT
- Lexical
Semantic Language Theory and its implementation in a system for text
analysis and understanding. There are two main tenets of the theory
which are supporting the construction of the system: one is that it is
possible to reduce access to domain world knowledge by means of
contextual reasoning, i.e. reasoning triggered independently by
contextual or linguistic features of the text under analysis. In other
words, it adopts what could be termed the Shallow Processing
Hypothesis: access to WordNet is reduced and substituted whenever links
are
missing through inferences on the basis of hand-coded lexical and
grammatical knowledge given to the system, which are worked out in a
fully general manner. The purpose of the book is to present in detail
the scientific foundations of the architecture and components of a (yet
to be) implemented system for text understanding and generation, and at
the same time to discuss critically some of the possible applications
in real world domains in which such an approach
could be fruitful.
