Commonly used devices, such as virtual assistants and automatic translators, are based on the ability to use and produce language automatically. The key science in the development of such technologies is computational linguistics.

The volume, through the analysis of the most recent theories and methods, offers to interested readers and scholars technical and critical tools to approach the discipline. The understanding of the functioning and limits of language technologies constitutes, in fact, the basis for greater awareness in their daily use, reminding us that we humans are not only the recipients but, by creating linguistic data, also the protagonists of the development process of technologies.
