The significant job of a future-oriented computational linguistics is the improvement of cognitive machines which people can freely speak with of their respective ordinary language. in the end, this job will make sure the improvement of a sensible conception of language, and goal approach to verification, and quite a lot of sensible functions. common verbal exchange calls for not just verbal processing, but additionally non-verbal conception and motion. The content material of this article is geared up as a concept of language for the development of speaking robots. the most subject is the mechanics of traditional language communique in either the hearer and the speaker. The content material is in 4 components: concept of language, formal grammar, morphology and syntax, and semantics and pragmatics. There are greater than seven hundred workouts for reviewing key rules and significant difficulties.

4 Beginnings of machine translation The choice between smart and solid solutions is illustrated by different approaches to machine translation. Translation in general requires that the meaning of a given text or utterance in a certain naturallanguage be reconstructed in another language. On the one hand, translation is a special task. Superficially, it may seem related to bilingual communication because bilingualism obviates the need for translation. 9 However, a bilingual speaker never uses more than one language at a time and translation is not inc1uded in the everyday repertoire of bilingual speakers and hearers.
Salton 1989, S. 248. 36 2. Technology and grammar For example: a query has resulted in 75 texts of which 50 turn out to be relevant to the user. 6%. Experience has shown that recall and precision are not independent of each other, but inversely proportional: a highly specific query will result in low recall with high precision, while a loosely fonnulated query will result in high recall with low precision. High recall has the advantage of retrieving a large percentage of the relevant texts from the database.
3 Methods and applications of computationallinguistics Computational linguisties uses parsers for the automatie analysis of language. ' Parsing in its most basic form consists in the automatic 1. decomposition of a complex sign into its elementary components, 2. classification of the components 15 via lexieallookup, and 3. composition of the c1assified components via syntactic rules in order to arrive at an overall grammatical analysis of the complex sign. 16 Methodologieally, the imp1ementation of natural language grammars as parsers is important because it allows to test the descriptive adequacy of formal rule systems automatically and objectively on real data.
