Emerging applications in computer-assisted information production and dissemination, automatedunderstanding of news, understanding of spoken language, andprocessing of foreign languages have given impetus to research thatresulted in a new generation of robust tools, systems, and commercialproducts. This volume focuses on the use of Natural LanguageProcessing (NLP) in Information Retrieval, the technology that grew out oflibrary research to become our best hope in dealing with todaysinformation overload. The book gives a broad overview of the work beingdone at the junction of these two important fields, and suggests directionsfor future explorations. It is organized into two loosely structured parts:The first part, consisting of Chapters 1 through 7, disc usses researchsystems and evaluations that represent major avenues where the impactof NLP technologies in information retrieval is being explored. The secondpart (Chapters 8 through 14) describes specific implementations andprototypes of information systems where NLP techniques are used orproposed to assist in accurate retrieval, text categorization, questionanswering, and in organizing the results for the user.
