Introducing Language Technology & Computational Linguistics in Bangladesh

Md. Mostafa Rashel

Abstract


Information technology should have much to offer linguistics not only through the opportunities offered by large-scale data analysis and the stimulus to develop formal computational models, but through the chance to use language in systems for automatic natural language processing. The paper discusses these possibilities in detail and then examines the actual work that has been done in Bangladesh. It is an evident that this has so far been primary research within a new field of Computational Linguistics (CL) which is largely motivated by the demands and interest of practical processing systems and that information technology has rather little influence on linguistics at large.
