Computational and quantitative studies.

Halliday, M. A. K. Ed. by Jonathan J. Webster.

The collected works of M.A.K. Halliday; v.6


Halliday's work on language in relation to computing has spanned over fifty years and encompassed modeling language that has been based on paradigms, contexts, functions, development and fuzzy logic. In this edition he weighs in on the early years of machine translation and its relation to the linguistics of a mechanical thesaurus, the essence of probabalistic grammar within corpus studies, with the corpus itself a theoretical construct, working into the realm in which dwells "intelligent computing," or better yet, computing with meaning. Some of the articles and ideas come from his work in the 1950s but are still startling and evocative, and have led to significant studies about themodeling of language.
