Computational Linguistics Research Area

Compling

 

The Computational Linguistics Research Area is a group of staff and graduate students interested in computational processing (i.e. analysis, understanding and generation) of human language. Research in Computational Linguistics has now been carried out in DTAL for over a decade. During this time the group of computational linguists has grown with an increasing number of researchers, research students and projects. The area's research activities span from Corpus Linguistics to nearly all the active areas of Natural Language Processing, and cover both basic and applied research.

There are three major research groups within the area:

These group websites provide information about on-going research projects, publications and opportunities. Further information can be found on the websites of individual area members.

Since computational linguistics is an interdisciplinary research field, the area has close links with other university departments in Cambridge that conduct research on language sciences, including the Computer Laboratory, the Departments of Experimental Psychology and Engineering, and the Cambridge Brain Science Unit.

The purpose of this study is to better understand whether learners of a second language differ from native speakers in text comprehension processes. Concretely, native Spanish speakers will be reading in their second language (English) to assess some cognitive processes that take place during normal text comprehension. To...
