Reviews

@from:J. Peregrin @qu:...This handbook is an extremely successful attempt at a state of the art summary of the interdisciplinary field which centers around the intersection of logic and linguistics.
...this makes the book into an indispensable compendium for anyone working with language. @source:The Prague Bulletin of Mathematical Linguistics
