Track #3

Technology applied to language processing


Óscar Ferreiro Vázquez

Language technologies have the main goal of applying linguistic knowledge to the development of computer systems that are able to recognize, understand and create human language in their different shapes.

Among the products and computer services created by linguistic engineering, that enhance and facilitate the work of translators and linguists, in this track we want to highlight the tools that allow an automated and semi-automated language processing and, therefore, are helpful for scientific research.

You can find below a brief list of possible themes we would like to discuss in this track of the Conference, but please note that the following list is merely indicative. We are open to other original proposal related to any area of Technology applied to language processing.

  • Computational Linguistics
  • Natural Language Processing
  • Language corpus: the CEILE example

  • Syntactic, morphological and semantic analysers for natural languages
  • Text mining and ontology databases
  • Information retrieval and search engines
  • Computerized language atlases
  • Lematizers, alienators, conjugators, bending machines and computer dictionaries
  • Phonetic and phonological treatment of languages tools: voice recognition and synthesis
  • Terminology resources on the internet: lexicons, vocabularies, glossaries and network monolingual, bilingual and multilingual dictionaries
  • Computational linguistics support on processing language texts: spelling errors correction, grammar and text digitization
  • Computational linguistics support to translate texts from one language to another: Computer Assisted Translation (CAT) an Automated Translation (AT)
  • Online communities working to recover and conserving languages: El Zamboanga De Antes
