Shalom Lappin is Emeritus Professor of Computational Linguistics at King’s College London, UK, a Fellow of the British Academy, and a Member of the Academia Europaea. He is currently Director of the Centre for Linguistic Theory and Studies in Probability at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, and Visiting Professor in the Cognitive Science Group in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science at Queen Mary University of London, UK. He is co-editor, with Alexander Clark and Chris Fox, of The Handbook of Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing (Wiley Blackwell, 2010), co- author, with Alexander Clark, of Linguistic Nativism and the Poverty of the Stimulus (Wiley Blackwell, 2011), and co-author of Foundations of Intensional Semantics (with Chris Fox, Blackwell, 2005). Chris Fox is a Reader in the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering, University of Essex, UK. He is the author of The Ontology of Language (2000) and co-author of Foundations of Intensional Semantics (with Shalom Lappin, Blackwell, 2005).
The study of the semantics of natural language has evolved rapidly over the last two decades. Reflecting great strides made in the field, the second edition of The Handbook of Contemporary Semantic Theory presents a detailed and systematic view of cutting-edge research, methodologies, and developments in contemporary theoretical and computational semantics. New and revised contributions, by leading international semanticists, highlight the radical shift in methods and theories that now shape linguistic semantic research. These include the application of modern computational techniques, type theory, and probabilistic models—methodologies that capture previously untapped subtleties of meaning and interpretation in natural language. The chapters of the Handbook also show these recent innovations have brought semantics into closer collaboration with ongoing research in computer science, AI (artificial intelligence), and cognitive science. Forward-looking and timely, the second edition of The Handbook of Contemporary Semantic Theory provides insights into the bold new ideas that are now shaping research in semantic theory.
