Explores the relationship between computer representation of knowledge and the structure of natural language. Emphasizes development of analytical skills necessary to judge the computational implications of grammatical formalisms, and uses concrete examples to illustrate particular computational issues. Efficient parsing algorithms for context-free grammars; Treebank grammars and statistical parsing. Question answering systems. Extensive laboratory work on building natural language processing systems.
