Natural Language is the language of all living things. It’s the way we, humans, communicate with each other and it’s also an area of science & technology, called Natural Language Processing (or NLP for short). A linguist, in essence, is someone that has the ability to bridge between language and technology. Despite common belief, linguists don’t just understand languages in terms of grammar and syntax, in fact they are particularly interested in understanding how words and sounds relate to concepts.
In addition to being able to understand a particular language or dialect, today’s linguists are expected to understand how language processing works in the context of machines. By using techniques from linguistics such as language modeling and parsing, a linguist can work with software engineers to build natural language understanding systems that can comprehend human dialogs or texts.
Here’s some projects our expert Linguists made real:
- Developing effective ways to aggregate and organize resources from multiple data sources
- Uncovering meaningful insights from large amounts of raw text data
- Automating natural conversation between humans and computers
- Creating novel algorithms for personalized text classification
- Building lexical ontologies with sentiment analysis capabilities
The possibilities displayed above demonstrate how the right combination of linguistics and technology can breathe life into abstract ideas like understanding human communication and languages. Powerful implementations such as automated personal assistants or intelligent question answering systems would not be possible without the work of a capable linguist.
