General statement. This course is an introduction to
computational linguistics. It assumes some basic familiarity with
linguistics concepts and requires the ability to program. We will be
covering traditional foundations of computational linguistics areas
such as finite-state methods, context-free and extended context-free
models of syntax, parsing, and semantic interpretation; basics of more
recent corpus-based and stochastic methods such as n-gram models,
hidden Markov models, probabilistic grammars, and statistical methods
for word sense disambiguation; and some selection of application areas
from among such topics as information retrieval, machine translation,
computational psycholinguistics, and computational lexicography.
Concepts taught in class will be reinforced in practice by hands-on
