Reader's Poll: Computational Linguistics

by on June 2, 2015

So, this issue, we asked our readers what they thought Computational Linguistics was — here are some of your responses:

  • The most awesome and underrated branch of linguistics that is NOT all about programming… And stuff. Haha.
  • The use of computational methods to analyse linguistic data (such as the recent application of Bayesian MCMC methods to produce a dated tree for the origin of Proto-Indo-European). Alternatively, computational approaches to language, such as the development of grammars for the parsing of human speech, such as Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG) or Lexical Functional Grammar (LFG).
  • The study of programming languages?
  • Computer programming in words instead of 0s and 1s?
  • The kind of text programmers use to create websites and software.
  • Study of the funky language computers use to speak! Or even motorised things like robots and Siri!
  • The thing that makes SIRI work.
  • Like Google translate and stuff?
  • I think computational linguistics has to do with programming languages, and the science of programming.
  • A field of linguistics that involves human-computer interaction?
  • I think it’s a very big field and can’t be defined by e.g. one process.
    One thing may be that in computational linguistics computer science and linguistics are joined together to one field. It’s the processing of language with machines. Some people in that area make robots speak and others develop programs for blind people so that the computer tells them what they wrote.
    Another thing may be that the computer will be able to recognise a language by a given text or that he can transform a picture of a text in a text document.
    There’s many more, though.

    It must be cool to be a programmer and be well versed in new technologies, applying them to software development or other products. I’m sure that this is now in high demand, as all business owners need to optimize and even automate their workflow.

    The need for quality automation software appears when a business starts to expand. More tasks, more clients and less time for small repetitive tasks. I recommend Sloboda Studio for developing software tailored to your business needs and goals. This is a great solution because these professionals are very attentive to the needs of the client and offer the best solutions.

  9. NLP is a subset of computational linguistics that deals with the interaction between computers and human language. It involves tasks such as text analysis, speech recognition, machine translation, sentiment analysis, and more.

  10. NLP involves the development of algorithms and models that enable computers to understand, interpret, and generate human language. This includes tasks like machine translation, sentiment analysis, text summarization, and more.

  11. Computational Linguistics is an interdisciplinary field that involves the study of natural language using computational methods. It focuses on developing algorithms, models, and software to enable computers to understand, process, and generate human language. This field sits at the intersection of linguistics, computer science, and artificial intelligence (AI).

  12. Computational linguists work on developing search engines and algorithms that can retrieve relevant information from large sets of textual data.

  13. Computational linguistics involves creating algorithms, models, and systems that can process human language. This includes tasks like speech recognition, language generation, machine translation, and sentiment analysis.

    Recently, my leisure time has been almost entirely made up of gambling, and it’s cool that now an online casino is something that is available to all people in order to have a pleasant and useful time. If you’re worried about security, there are now casinos like Conquestador that provide not only a wide range of gambling, but also reliable and safe conditions.

    I can’t imagine how I’d study at university if it weren’t for nutritional supplements like Well, studying is not something that comes easily or with pleasure to me. I often experience stress, nervous tension, and often worry about trifles, but this takes away from me a lot of resources that I could use for other purposes
