The question addressed in this seminar is how one might go about digitizing entire languages. The question is in part very practical and in part very philosophical. On the practical side, we will consider technology for language documentation and description, including recording technology, data collection tools, corpus and treebank construction, lexicon and grammar development, online data publication, and automated grammar learning. On the philosophical side, we will consider how a computational and data-mining approach to linguistic description might lead to a radically different linguistic paradigm, one in keeping with broad methodological advances in the natural sciences over the last 50 years or so.
