Not really. It's a pretty broad question.
If he is referring to artificial languages, the standard (at least
when I was studying them) was Aho, Sethi & Ullman's _Compilers
--Principles, Techniques, and Tools_ from Addison Wesley. Popularly
known as the Dragon Book. Even if you are interested in natural
languages, you would do well to start with man-made ones.
As for natural languages, I found Winograd's _Language As a Cognitive
Process_ quite lucid. Don't recall the publisher though.
It's been a while. There may have been other good sources written since then.
