LING 4400: Linguistic meaning

LING 8450: Seminar in computational and experimental pragmatics (graduate)

The course explores recent research in the fields of computational and experimental pragmatics, looking at topics such as models of reference, projective meaning, sentiment analysis, and scalar implicature. We will investigate how efforts in theoretical linguistics and computational/experimental techniques can complement each other. The course will cover both basic tutorial material and more advanced topics. Students are encouraged to pursue a term project related to their own developing research interests. At the end of the course, students will be able to conduct research in experimental pragmatics, will be familiar with the advantages and drawbacks of crowdsourcing methods, and will understand the current mainstream efforts in computational pragmatics.

Topic: Computational methods for linguists

The course introduces computational methods for collecting and analyzing quantitative linguistic data, with a primary focus on the use of corpora in exploring theoretical questions in various areas of linguistics. Topics include the access and retrieval of corpus data (i.a., tgrep/Tregex), automatic methods of data annotation, and statistical modeling. The class will be hands-on: you will get practical experience with various computational tools, as well as with the statistical package R.
