Books on Computational Semantics by Patrick Blackburn & Johan Bos
Representation and Inference for Natural Language
A First Course in Computational Semantics

This book developed out of courses on computational semantics that we taught at the Department of Computational Linguistics, University of the Saarland, at ESSLLI'97, the 9th European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information, at ESSLLI'01, the 13th European Summer School for Logic, Language, and Information, and at NASSLLI'02, the 2nd North American Summer School for Logic, Language, and Information.

We have finally managed to produce the kind of introduction to computational semantics that we wanted all along. It has taken us a long time to get there, but the journey has been a lot of fun. We hope that this comes through, and that the book will be a useful introduction to the challenging and fascinating area known as computational semantics.
