The Word Universe


Short description about the volume:

In the last 10 years, computational linguistics has come to life once again thanks to increased computational power we have these days. The number of recent manuscripts on old topics from the sixties and seventies has risen, and papers on those include natural language processing applications, word embedding, sentiment analysis, automatic processing of text datasets, etc. In addition to more computational power, the number of available datasets has been radically increasing. The primary focus of this edited volume is to explore the applied and practical aspects of computational linguistics. It will cover from classical problems to the latest research realms of computational linguistics.

Most of the chapters of this book will be based on quantitative chunks of language elements and data analysis. The contents of the present book will not only present state-of-the-art topics being dealt but also their empirical aspects and practical implementations. Moreover, the present book will also explicitly the practical applications of NLP to all the spheres of human life. Thus, this edited volume aims to collect the best recent research and present old topics in a new light.

As editors, we shall endeavor that this volume explores the applied and empirical facets of computational linguistics and natural language processing rather than their theoretical and philosophical descriptions. In addition, we will do our best to bring the important and essential elements of computational linguistics under a single title.

We request potential authors to consider submitting their scholarly findings to enrich the content of this intended volume. The book will cover the following topics, but not limited to:

  • Automatic Text Summarization

  • Bag of Words

  • Community Question Answering

  • Hedges and Discourse Analysis

  • Linguistic Features of Emoticons

  • Machine Translation

  • Mathematical Modelling of Linguistic Elements

  • Semantic Indexing

  • Sentiment Analysis and Opinion Mining

  • Spam Detection

  • Stylistics and Its Mathematical Models

  • Text Classification and Clustering

  • Tokenization

  • Topic Modelling

  • Word Sense Disambiguation
