The Department of Computational Linguistics carries out theoretical and applied research in the field of natural language processing (NLP). The main directions of scientific study cover:
- theoretical problems of the formal description of natural languages,
- morphological, syntactic and semantic analysis,
- electronic dictionaries,
- ontologies and semantic relations,
- corpus linguistics,
- document categorisation and annotation,
- information extraction and information retrieval,
- part-of-speech, syntactic, and word sense disambiguation,
- machine translation,
Our current research priorities are oriented towards automatic word-sense disambiguation and the problems of machine translation.
DCL has at its disposal large coverage language resources – dictionaries, lexical-semantic data bases, corpora, as well as highly-performing computer applications for language data processing.
The Department of Computational Linguistics has attracted highly-qualified young professionals from different fields of knowledge – linguists, computer scientists, mathematicians, logicians. The interdisciplinary research carried out at DCL has brought about the establishment of a continuous cooperation with leading professionals working in different scientific fields.
