Herbal Lexicon: In 10 Languages by Kate Koutrouboussis
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 5 MB
Overview: This book’s aim is to help herbal travellers including students, professional biologists in the field, herbal retailers and wholesalers, people living away from their own country, and medical herbalists. The author has mainly kept to herbs that grow in Europe and the Mediterranean but has included some from the rest of the world that are commonly used in Europe. The book is very simple to use.

Part 1 consists of the Latin names, numbered and in alphabetical order, and under each heading you will find the plant’s name in several languages. Part 2 comprises the different languages in index form and beside each entry is the number for the Latin names that are in part 1. For example, if you are an English speaker and want to find the Polish name for red clover, go to the English index and you will see 706 beside the entry for red clover. Turn to part 1 and find 706 with its Latin name, Trifolium pratensis, and in the list below it, under P, you’ll see Koniczyna łąkowa, which is polish for red clover. Easy! The same system applies regardless of your nationality.

Domain Specific Languages with Xtext.. by Lorenzo Bettini

Implementing Domain Specific Languages with Xtext and Xtend, 2nd Edition by Lorenzo Bettini
Requirements: .PDF reader, 10,8 MB
Overview: Xtext is an open source Eclipse framework for implementing domain-specific languages together with IDE functionalities. It lets you implement languages really quickly; most of all, it covers all aspects of a complete language infrastructure, including the parser, code generator, interpreter, and more. This book will enable you to implement Domain Specific Languages (DSL) efficiently, together with their IDE tooling, with Xtext and Xtend. Opening with brief coverage of Xtext features involved in DSL implementation, including integration in an IDE, the book will then introduce you to Xtend as this language will be used in all the examples throughout the book. You will then explore the typical programming development workflow with Xtext when we modify the grammar of the DSL. Further, the Xtend programming language (a fully-featured Java-like language tightly integrated with Java) will be introduced. We then explain the main concepts of Xtext, such as validation, code generation, and customizations of runtime and UI aspects. You will have learned how to test a DSL implemented in Xtext with JUnit and will progress to advanced concepts such as type checking and scoping. You will then integrate the typical Continuous Integration systems built in to Xtext DSLs and familiarize yourself with Xbase. By the end of the book, you will manually maintain the EMF model for an Xtext DSL and will see how an Xtext DSL can also be used in IntelliJ.

Interpreted Languages and Compositionality by Marcus Kracht

Interpreted Languages and Compositionality by Marcus Kracht
Requirements: .PDF reader, 2 MB
Overview: This book argues that languages are composed of sets of ‘signs’, rather than ‘strings’. This notion, first posited by de Saussure in the early 20th century, has for decades been neglected by linguists, particularly following Chomsky’s heavy critiques of the 1950s. Yet since the emergence of formal semantics in the 1970s, the issue of compositionality has gained traction in the theoretical debate, becoming a selling point for linguistic theories.Yet the concept of ‘compositionality’ itself remains ill-defined, an issue this book addresses. Positioning compositionality as a cornerstone in linguistic theory, it argues that, contrary to widely held beliefs, there exist non-compositional languages, which shows that the concept of compositionality has empirical content. The author asserts that the existence of syntactic structure can flow from the fact that a compositional grammar cannot be delivered without prior agreement on the syntactic structure of the constituents.
