There is a new book in the Routledge 'Studies in Computer Assisted
Language Learning' Series that seems worthwhile announcing in this

Trude Heift and Mathias Schulze: "Errors and Intelligence in
Computer-Assisted Language Learning: Parsers and Pedagogues"
2007. Routledge. ISBN: 9780415361910

The book provides the first comprehensive overview of theoretical
issues, historical developments and current trends in ICALL, the field
integrating Natural Language Processing and other AI techniques into
Computer-Assisted Language Learning.

Given the interdisciplinary character of ICALL research and the
fragmented nature of its publications outlets, the book provides a
unique opportunity to read a comprehensive discussion of the research
issues and results based on information collected from a wide range of
outlets, including reports and proceedings not widely available.

The book is an important resource for students studying CALL, SLA,
language pedagogy, applied linguistics, computational linguistics or
artificial intelligence, as well as researchers with a background in
any of these fields.

Table of Contents:
   1. Introduction
   2. NLP in CALL
   3. Error analysis and description
   4. Feedback
   5. Student modeling
   6. The past and the future

All the best,
Detmar (for the ICALL SIG of CALICO)
