Class Description:
This course is an introduction to the application of computational methods to natural languages, with a focus on both theoretical-linguistic issues and practical applications. Every level of linguistic organization is covered, including phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics. Specific topics include computational morphology and phonology, part-of-speech tagging, parsing, computational semantics, word sense disambiguation, coreference resolution and the analysis of discourse and dialogue. The course also introduces the basic formal tools in symbolic approaches to computational linguistics, such as regular expressions and finite-state automata, context-free grammars, feature structures and unification, in addition to recent corpus-based and stochastic methods.
