Abstract:

> This book is the long-awaited follow up to the successful first two books
on computing meaning
> A collection of papers by outstanding researchers in the field of
computational semantics

This book provides an in-depth view of the current issues, problems and
approaches in the computation of meaning as expressed in language. Aimed at
linguists, computer scientists, and logicians with an interest in the
computation of meaning, this book focuses on two main topics in recent
research in computational semantics. The first topic is the definition and
use of underspecified semantic representations, i.e. formal structures that
represent part of the meaning of a linguistic object while leaving other
parts unspecified. The second topic discussed is semantic annotation.
Annotated corpora have become an indispensable resource both for linguists
and for developers of language and speech technology, especially when used
in combination with machine learning methods. The annotation in corpora has
only marginally addressed semantic information, however, since semantic
annotation methodologies are still in their infancy. This book discusses
the development and application of such methodologies.
