This course provides an introduction to the field of Natural Language Processing (NLP) - the creation of computer programs that can understand, generate, and learn natural language. Natural language understanding will be used as a vehicle to introduce three major subfields of NLP: syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. The course will introduce both knowledge-based and statistical methods for NLP, and will illustrate the use of such methods in a variety of application areas.
