Computational linguistics

Computational Linguistics is a subfield of Linguistics in which logical modelling of natural language from an computational perspective is central. This modelling is not limited to a particular field of linguistics. It is quite an interdisciplinary field, drawing the involvement of linguists, computer scientists, experts in artificial intelligence, cognitive psychologists and logicians, amongst others.

Some of the areas of research that are studied by computational linguistics include:

The Association for Computational Linguistics defines computational linguistics as:
...the scientific study of language from a computational perspective. Computational linguists are interested in providing computational models of various kinds of linguistic phenomena.
