Computer linguistics

Subject-matter

Computer linguistics is the computer-aided analysis and algorithmic processing of normal speech. It includes the systematic searching of data bases, automatic translation of text, the generation of texts in “natural” language and more. Techniques developed within computer-aided linguistics have found particularly important application in the dialogue between humans and machines, for example in the vocal control of machines or the automated answering of telephone enquiries.
