Synopsis

Programming for Linguists - Java Technology for Language Researchers by Michael Hammond

Simple programming expertise is an essential part of many forms of data collection and analysis for modern linguists and related language professionals. Programming for Linguists: JavaTM Technology for Language Researchers is a practical introduction to programming using the JavaTM programming language, a full-powered language with complete graphics capability that can be run on any computer. Programming for Linguists includes over one hundred carefully constructed sample programs that introduce new concepts simply but also accomplish tasks necessary for anyone who works with language as data. Many of these programs can be used immediately, with minimal or no modification. The text is accompanied by exercises, and all of the programs are available at http://www. u. arizona. edu/~hammond.

Reviews

This book is for people who want to get some computing done - particularly linguists, behavioral scientists, and scholars in the humanities. I plan to recommend it to my linguistics students who want to learn about computer programming. Michael A. Covington, Artificial Intelligence Center, University of Georgia

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 of Arizona

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. Discourse Studies

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

Jennifer Moville

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Sarah Bruch

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

Margaret Freeman

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!
