Readings in Japanese Natural Language Processing

edited by Francis Bond, Timothy Baldwin, Kentaro Inui, Shun Ishizaki, Hiroshi Nakagawa, and Akira Shimazu

Readings in Japanese Natural Language Processing surveys a wide range of texts that explore Japanese morphology and syntactic analysis, discourse, and natural language processing applications. Presenting such techniques in a manner accessible to those with little or no familiarity with Japanese, these carefully selected papers will broaden the scope of our study of Japanese linguistic phenomena, making this collection indispensable in the field.

Francis Bond is associate professor in the Computational Linguistics Lab at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. Timothy Baldwin is professor in the Department of Computing and Information Systems at the University of Melbourne, Australia. Kentaro Inui is professor at the Graduate School of Information Sciences, Tohoku University, Japan.
