This course introduces the use of computational methods to explain meaning in language. The first half of the course examines existing methods of deriving formal representations for the meanings of natural-language sentences. (This will include a self-contained introduction to the programming language Prolog.) The second half of the course will focus entirely on a large class project. This project will take the methods learned in the first half of the class and apply them to a real-world problem, such as designing a system to answer questions based on a given text.
