Human language has a rich mathematical structure, which is interesting in its own right, as well as for the computational methods and technologies that depend on it. This course describes the mathematics of language and provides an introduction to computational linguistics. Topics covered include formal language theory, semantics and logic, probabilistic models, information theory, and learning theory. The course involves no programming and has no specific prerequisites, but good mathematical aptitude and some background in linguistics are strongly recommended.
