Computational lexicography is a fast-growing field with implications for a wide range of disciplines-theoretical linguistics, computational linguistics, cognitive science, and artificial intelligence-as well as for the construction of dictionaires. The `Grosseto Workshop' was an event which broke new ground. It brought together for the first time an international and interdisciplinary group of researchers concerned with computational lexicography. These papers, selected from the workshop, have provided a baseline and a reference point for further research on problems associated with the lexicon. The collection is not merely of historical interest: it addresses many issues that are still debated today and that guide current research and development.

If ever a book celebrated cooperation, the coming together of diverse people in an effort to learn from each other, that book is Automating the Lexicon ... an important stock-taking from the mid-1980s...many of its papers survey a wide range of different approaches and issues in computational linguistics, picking interesting ideas from here and there. * Times Higher Education Supplement *

The book ... is very well edited ... it presents a vast array of real natural language processing systems with appropriate references, most of which will be of interest to readers of this journal. It also forms a good starting point for anyone embarking on the construction of large lexicons, be they for spell checking, machine translation, text generation or computer assisted language learning. * Natural Language Engineering, Vol 2- Part 3 *
The collection is readable...This collection of Workshop papers will be useful for a graduate seminar course which covers computational linguistics, particularly outside of the domain. * Journal of the American Society for Information Science *
