Course Aims

This course aims at introducing students to some of the major issues and solutions in natural language processing.  The underlying computational properties of natural languages are considered at the lexical, syntactic, and semantic level from linguistic and statistical perspectives.  Both traditional rule-based context-free models and modern corpus-based quantitative techniques will be discussed.  Selected natural language applications will also be introduced.  Concepts taught in class will be reinforced by hands-on practical exercises.
