A highly stimulating and impressive book which should be found in every library and every linguistics department. I strongly recommend it. International Journal of Lexicography An excellent reference book that provides a wealth of information and enables the experienced reader to enter quickly into new subject areas of CL [computational linguistics] and NLP [natural language processing]... The particular strengths of the OHCL are the comprehensive computation-oriented discussion of the fundamental linguistic issues and the broad coverage of NLP methods and resources. It thus extensively accounts for the theoretical and methodological backgrounds of CL and NLP... The publisher should consider issuing a moderately priced student's edition to make the OHCL affordable to the wide audience it definitely deserves. Linguist List
