OVERVIEW

Computational Linguistics aims at developing models and tools for natural language processing. since it combines methods and techniques from both linguistics, computer science, artificial intelligence and statistics, Computational Linguistics is interdisciplinary in nature. The scope of the discipline is therefore quite broad, and the course focuses on some of its many issues: corpus linguistics, information management, text annotation, automated and assisted translation.
