Computational Linguistics

Subject Name: 
Cognitive Science
Course Number: 
Hampshire College
Computational linguistics is an interdisciplinary field investigating the use of computers to process or produce human language (also known as "natural language," to distinguish it from computer languages). To this endeavor, linguistics contributes an understanding of the special properties of language data, and provides theories and descriptions of language structure and use. Computer science contributes theories and techniques for designing and implementing computer systems that generate and parse linguistic input. Students in this course will engage in both the theoretical and the applied aspects of this inquiry. Prerequisite detail: Any combination of courses that totals at least two semesters worth of college-level studies in linguistics, computer science, or psycholinguistics.(i.e. two computer science courses, two linguistics courses, one course in computer science and one course in linguistics, etc.)
Mind, Brain, and Information Quantitative Skills In this course, students are expected to spend at least six to eight hours a week of preparation and work outside of class time. This time includes reading, writing, research.
