computational linguistics

The science of the structure of human language as applied to the computer. The terms "computational linguistics" and "natural language processing" are often assumed to be synonymous; however, the former refers more to the science, and the latter more to its actual use in the field. See natural language query and voice recognition.

Editors Domenico Fiormonte and Jonathan Usher distill and recombine these themes in their introduction, but here we simply provide a precis of each of the essays, which fall roughly into three groupings, although the table of contents suggests no such organization: theoretical and practical constructs for understanding the significance of electronic philology, historical and critical perspectives on the development of computational linguistics and humanities computing, and case studies.
