If you are new to the computational linguistics program, you might be interested in GettingStarted with computational linguistics at IU.
What is everyone doing?
- Dialect distance: phonological distance, syntactic distance, extracting the most important features from the generated distances
- Computational phonology: OT learning, OT implementation, explanation of historical processes like analogy
- Data-driven corpus linguistics: annotation error detection, POS tagging, interfaces to parsing; Intelligent Computer-aided language learning (ICALL)
- computational phonology, phonotactics, sonority, frequency in phonology
- comparative syntax, Minimalist parsing and generation, Intelligent computer-aided language learning (ICALL), Machine translation, Finite-state morphology
- sentiment analysis, machine learning for automatic identification of semantic relations, supervised approaches to ranking, domain adaptation
- learning verb valencies/subcategories from corpora; soon, with Mike Gasser: machine translation with synchronous dependency grammars...
- Please add your own summary here and links to more details.
Nearly every week, we have a discussion group (CLingDing, ["CL Lunch"]) where people present work-in-progress or useful tutorials. Past topics include ["How to use Big Red"] and UnixTricks. The computational linguists also hosted the ["Professionalization Workshop"] during the Spring 2008 semester.
The department maintains a ["List of Corpora"] from many languages.
Some useful information for the ["Lab"] in Memorial Hall 401.
Bloggregation and reading list
Started a list of CL/NLP blogs over here: ClBloggregation. Do you write stuff online? Do you read stuff online? Maybe you could add some blogs to the list.
