    Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


    In everyday communication, Europe's citizens, business partners and politicians are inevitably confronted with language barriers. Language technology has the potential to overcome these barriers and to provide interfaces to technologies and knowledge. This white paper presents the state of language technology support for the English language. It is part of a series that analyses the available language resources and technologies for 30 European languages. The analysis for the English language was carried out by the UK National Centre for Text Mining within META-NET, a Network of Excellence funded by the European Commission.
