Data Structures and Algorithms for Computational Linguistics III


This programming course provides an introduction to algorithms and data structures that are commonly used in computational linguistics, such as string distance measures, data structures for approximate string search, finite state automata, and parsing algorithms. The course is driven by assignments where participants implement these algorithms and data structures in small, but practical, applications.
