We are interested in whatever helps, will help eventually, or might help computers to meaningfully process language data. This special issue promotes the exchange of opinions between experts working in different areas of the growing field of computational linguistics and intelligent text processing. Its main purpose is to bring together scientists representing linguistics, computer science and related fields, sharing a common interesting the advancement of intelligent natural language processing. The issue covers a broad spectrum of disciplines working towards enabling intelligent system to interact with humans using natural language.

The research and development of these systems, which exploit knowledge in the target domain, is at the forefront of modern research. This special issue is intended to present applications of intelligent natural language processing whereby submitted papers are expected to postulate diverse problems, models and solutions for these applications.
