Michael Hammond is Professor of Linguistics at the University of Arizona. He is the author of numerous books and articles on phonology, morphology, psychophonology, and computational linguistics, including Constraining Metrical Theory (1988), Phonology of English (1999), and Programming for Linguists: Perl for Language Researchers (Blackwell 2003).
- Exposes the general reader with an interest in language to the most usable and relevant aspects of Perl for writing programs that deal with language
- Contains simple examples and exercises that gradually introduce the reader to the essentials of good programming
- Assumes no prior programming experience
- Accompanied by exercises at the end of each chapter and offers all the code on the companion website: http://www.u.arizona.edu/~hammond
"Here finally is an introductory Java programming book that
really enables anyone interested in working with language on a
computer to learn how to do it. You don't have to be a
‘language researcher' to use this book – all you need
is an interest in language and a willingness to learn the craft of
object-oriented programming." D. Terence Langendoen, University
"Surprisingly readable...should be on the bookshelf of any discourse analysist even thinking about tinkering with using computers to automate some portion of their data analysis... structured and written for maximum learning and understanding of the relevance of different programming features for a linguist."
