This module provides specific links among topics in Computer Science (programming computing) Linguistics and Language Studies. It aims to give students an understanding of how computers may be employed to solve real-world problems as well as to give a general theoretical overview of possible computational linguistic applications. Specifically, the module will introduce students to first programming in computational linguistics tasks, using different languages. Students will be lead to the use of unix system, shell scripting, and Emacs, as well as to design and write simple programs in Java and Prolog.
Theoretical introduction on language and computing.
