The aim of the lecture is to present practical methods and techniques of natural language processing. These techniques, mainly the techniques of syntactic and semantic processing, will be illustrated with specific tasks (such as: Information Extraction, Dialogue Systems, etc.), on the basis of English and Polish. The lecture focuses on high-level largely language-dependent methods. This lecture is to a large extent independent of and complementary to the lecture Linguistic Engineering ? Constructions.
1. Introduction. Terminology (Linguistic Engineering, Computational Linguistics, NLP, HLT, etc.), history, applications, two paradigms (symbolic and statistical). (1 lecture)
2. Types of syntactic processing, shallow parsing, parsing as tagging (lexical disambiguation). (1 lecture)
3. Shallow parsing with regular grammars, cascades of regular grammars. (1 lecture)
4. Information extraction. (1 lecture)
5. Deep parsing, context-free grammars and parsers. (1-2 lectures)
6. Treebanks and stochastic parsers. (1 lecture)
7. Dependency grammars and parsers. (1 lecture)
8. Unification-based grammars and parsers (DCG, PATR-II, HPSG). (1 lecture)
9. Semantics: lexical and compositional, meaning representation, semantic formalisms. (1 lecture)
10. Montague semantics and/or Discourse Representation Theory. (1 lecture)
11. Semantics in context-free, dependency and unification-based grammars. (1-2 lectures)
12. Text generation and traditional approaches to machine translation. (1 lecture)
13. Discourse representation, dialogue systems. (1 lecture)
The course will be given in Polish, if no non-Polish speaking students register for it.
