This book contains the refereed proceedings of the DIMACS Workshop on Human Language, held in March 1992 at Princeton University. The workshop drew together many of the world's most prominent linguists, computer scientists, and learning theorists to focus on language computations. A language computation is a computation that underlies the comprehension, production, or acquisition of human language. These computations lie at the very heart of human language. This volume aims to advance understanding of language computation, with a focus on computations related to the sounds and words of a language. The book investigates sensory-motor representation of speech sounds (phonetics), phonological stress, problems in language acquisition, and the relation between the sound and the meaning of words (morphology). The articles are directed toward researchers with an interest in human language and in computation. Although no article requires expertise in linguistics or computer science, some background in these areas is helpful, and the book provides relevant references.
