Research in computational linguistics

Computational linguistics involves anything that combines computers and human language. Most familiar is probably language technology, such as machine translation, speech recognition, and information extraction. But computational inguistics also includes computational models of language processing and language learning, grammar engineering, and the management and analysis of large linguistic corpora, including the documentation of endangered languages.
