Source information and format

The source information is all maintained in BibTeX format (cf. in English, in German). BibTex is a content model for bibliographical information that is very widely used in the scientific community and which is supported by a range of free software. Technical documentation for using BibTeX is available here (pdf file, 128kb). You do not need to know about BibTeX to use the information provided on this page however.

The bibliography provided may be searched in a variety of ways. The information is also available in several other formats; but the BibTeX is definitive: that means that any errors in the others may be due to the problems of automatic conversion or to problems with the original BibTeX source. No editing or changes are made in any files except the BibTex source when it is updated. Updates occur 5 or 6 times a year, perhaps more often, depending on how much new material has come in.

The files

The entire bibliography file in its original and derived forms are available as follows... As explained above, the bibtex-file is the file which is guaranteedly the most up to date, the rest follow at irregular intervals and the updates trickle through. Low priority/usefulness (in my opinion) renditions are updated less frequently and may even go stale or not be served due to changing security profiles on our server, lack of conversion software, etc. Get in touch with me if there are problems or if a particular format that you want is too out of date.

Using the bibliography from LaTeX
If you are using the bibliography file from LaTeX and BibTeX (the best way!), then it would be helpful if corrections and additions were not made to the file 00.bib as downloaded. Please refer to the Usage Page for suggestions. See also the Tex2rtf program for a way of using BibTeX without LaTeX (this is now a very old program, however, and so there may well be other ways available).
Adding new entries
Note that sending me updates or new entries in virtually any accepted standard form (excluding free plain text following the whims of the writer on the day) makes it more convenient and easier for me to add them to the database. The longer the list of entries that are submitted, the more this is true.There may be a considerable backlog when I receive (still gratefully!) long lists of publications in plain text or as a Word document: if you are using any bibliographical database software, then that form is infinitely preferable and will result in the entries being added very quickly.
Virtual bibliographies and access by subject areas

The areas covered include those areas with which I am most concerned, i.e.:

  • linguistics (primarily functional), with a good dose of others, including historically significant work
  • natural language generation
  • systemic-functional linguistics in particular
  • natural language processing
  • discourse analysis and all that involves
  • spatial language
  • semiotics in general and Peirce in particular
  • ontology and natural language
  • multimodal linguistics: particularly multimodal documents, film and visual narrative

A variety of individually accessible and browsable information sources build on this resource. One of these is the Bateman/Zock list of Natural Language Generation systems. Several others exist in the form of virtual bibliographies, were you can extract bibliographies concerning particular areas to create a sub-bibliography; the areas currently supported here mostly revolve around systemic-functional linguistics, although others will no doubt be added. The extraction page is reached here. Again it must be emphasized that there is only one source for this information, and so changes have to be made in the basic source for corrections to be effective. There are always a few entries that appear to go missing in the various conversions that are carried out on the BibTeX file; fortunately this applies to less than 20 or so entries at present.

Note that all searches are performed with respect to the uploaded version of the BibTex file given above. Therefore only the data of update of this file is relevant when considering searching

When searching from the 'search-by-name' indexes, however, the search runs over all of the bibliographies of the Computer Science Bibliographies set and so leverages off their contents too. The procedure followed when making the dedicated search pages is described here

One can also try the experimental online version now uploaded to the University of Bremen RefWorks shared area if one has access: this is here. It is not maintained particularly, however, and so if relevant let me know and I can run-off an update.

Free search

Another way to search and access this bibliography is to go to the version maintained at the collection of Computer Science Bibliographies at: http://liinwww.ira.uka.de/bibliography/Ai/bateman.html. This version is updated automatically when the source file above changes, but this may not happen for a week or so. If you are close to the update date, check to make sure that the Computer Science Bibliographies version has also been updated. This is the searching facility that you reach directly from the search option at the top of this page on the left.

Other bibliographical sources

Some useful pointers to bibliographical information are the following (not ordered particularly), many of these contain additional references to those in the current list maintained here, particularly for those areas that are not a main focus of this bibliography:

  • Stefan Müller's Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar bibliographical database in Berlin (portal) [actively maintained]
  • Erik Wilde's bibtex file of XML, web, CSCW and related issues (bibtex) [actively maintained]
  • The Language Evolution and Computation Bibliography (bibtex) [actively maintained]
  • Richmond Thomason's bibliography of Philosophy, Linguistics and much more (bibtex) [22000+ entries; actively maintained]
  • Raymond Lau's bibliography of Speech Recognition and Spoken Language Systems (bibtex) [5397 entries; -1998]
  • Mark Kantrowitz's older natural language generation bibliography (bibtex) [1285 entries; -1995]
  • The University of Pennsylvania bibliography of Artificial Intelligence (bibtex) [10506 entries; -1995]
  • not in Bibtex, but still very useful are the listing by topic on Teun van Dijk's website: including visual communication, critical discourse and much more.
  • And, not necessarily BibTex but with a lot of topics nonetheless: the LinguistList bibliography page

Some assorted links on the issue of large-scale bibliographical sources in the modern world (no, I don't believe that BibTeX is the last word ... it is just several steps further down the path than most!):

Information about LaTeX and conversions

BibTeX is the bibliographical form used with the LaTeX-document preparation system. Here are some notes on this, with ample explanations of why this is really the only way to go for complex or longer documents!:
