This course is a continuation of LING 441 (Computational Linguistics I. ) The previous course introduced part of speech tagging, parsing and semantic interpretation. In this course we begin by looking at psychological parsing models. Constructing parsers motivates corpus-based learning of a variety of information: prepositional phrase attachments, sub-categorization frames and selectional restrictions, and word sense disambiguation.

Corpus-based learning is also fundamental to one of the major language technologies, namely, information extraction. We examine information retrieval and text classification, entity recognition and partial parsing, and relation extraction, working up to an examination of the state of the art in parsing, which is lexicalized probabilistic parsing. We conclude with a brief look at either speech processing or machine translation.
