On the other, the contributions demonstrate practical usage such as automated indexing or knowledge representation. This Festschrift is dedicated to Professor Harald. H. Zimmermann. The final chapter focuses on his commitment to the field of language, information and literature both regionally in Saarland and Europe as a whole, and acknowledges his scientific work in the development of computer linguistics and information science over the last 40 years.
