HASH(0xa37c948c) out of 5 stars Not Just for Linguists Oct. 22 2001
By J. putnam - Published on
Format: Paperback
Mathematical Methods in Linquistics is far more about mathematical methods than about linguistics, although in many places linquistics is used as a source of examples.
Instead it covers such mathematical topics as sets (including infinite sets), relations, a good deal of mathematical logic,
automata (up to turing machines), the lambda calculus, lattices and more.
This would be an excellent book for an advanced undergraduate or graduate student in either mathematics or computer science to use
either as a review text, or as a study guide for further investigation.

HASH(0xa37c94e0) out of 5 stars Comprehensive March 22 2007
By Dandelion - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is well written and detailed. I found it particularly useful for my semantics course. It covers the necessary logic one need to do semantics. It also discuses type theory and the lambda calculus. This book is a great complement to any semantics text.

HASH(0xa37c97bc) out of 5 stars Extremely good. Jan. 27 2010
By E. Ebrahim - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is incredible. It's a great introduction to axiomatic set theory at the beginning, and it does a great introduction to model theory. I haven't gotten to the linguistics part of it yet, but it covers math and logic in an extremely effective way.
HASH(0xa37c96b4) out of 5 stars Excellent Book ! March 31 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Lifesaver ! .......I love this book ....I absolutely adore this book......just looking at it makes me happy !:) .........I have a problem with the title though ?! ....I think the authors are being a little humble to suggest that the book is for linguistics students only.......I am a math major and I have used it as an introduction to my course in the foundations of mathematics ........I recommended to a fellow philosopher and he also loved it so much and he has read it a couple of times so far .........I will go as far as saying that I think the book is more suited for mathematicians philosophers and even computer scientists than linguists ........I will definitely suggest the book to everyone who wants to get a good grounding in some of the more fundamental and less accessible areas of mathematics that deal with formal systems, formal languages or generally any species of formalization and some interesting applications of these methods.......

HASH(0xa37c9cf0) out of 5 stars Clear introduction to Linguistics for Math people Aug. 17 2013
By Alexander Shuger - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a lovely book that starts in the foundations of mathematics and ends with formal and natural language theory. It can be followed by anyone who wants to spend the time and think about the concepts and do the exercises - which all have solutions in the back of the book. The examples are straight forward and every word can be taken as Hoyle.

Those with a math background will find the first half a delightful review of concepts they have seen in various courses, like abstract algebra and set theory, but with a slightly different twist, one that is more foundational and language theoretic than the standard math treatments.

It would serve well for a course in Linguistics for math majors or conversely as a course in formal languages and Mathematics for language majors.

The ideas presented are timeless so don't let the early publication date lead you astray. There cannot be any better, more current treatment available.
