A very usefull reference book, concise and informative, 15 Dec 2003
This was just the kind of book I needed as a student of Computer Science working on linguistic projects together with linguists. A lot of terms that are commonly used by linguists are explained in a concise way that is easy to understand.
The book seems to cover both elementary terms as well as more advanced concepts. It also contains several "bridges" between linguistic theory and Computer Science.
