Reviews

The overall evaluation is therefore definitely very good:the work is solid, complete and definitely an important referencefor NLP and CL. (Linguistlist, 14 January2014) Altogether, this Handbookcovers a wide variety of topicsin NLP and CL and, is of particular use to researchers in the fieldof MT. On a more general note, graduate students or noviceresearchers can utilise this book as a comprehensive starting pointfor their area of interest within NLP or CL All in all,this is very well compiled book, which effectively balances thewidth and depth of theories and applications in two very diverseyet closely related fields of language research.
