What is it?
- Computational linguistics research: Students specializing in computational linguistics take advantage of the lab facilities in pursuing their research.
- Psycholinguistics research: Reading time and web-based psycholinguistic experiments are also carried out in the lab.
- Empirical grounding of linguistic theory: Students who wish to ground their linguistic theories though empirical investigations using natural language corpora are encouraged to use the lab facilities for this purpose.
- Machines: The lab currently houses six Linux machines, one Windows machine, and one Mac.
- Data: The lab has a large set of natural language corpora, both annotated and unannotated, in text, speech, and database form, and in a variety of natural languages. Search tools are also available (e.g., tgrep).
