PostHeaderIcon Research

The Human Language Engineering Laboratory promotes basic research in computational linguistics, and application of this research in natural language processing.

The research activity of the laboratory in formal and computational linguistics is focused on two major trends:

  • a conceptual, formal trend, e.g. the use of grammatical theories that can be applied from a computational or formal perspective;
  • a trend concerned with storing, administrating and processing of empirical data in Romanian through the so-called ”corpus linguistics”. The results of this trend will form both an empirical basis for future formalizations and a domain where their reliability may be checked.

Fields of our research interest are:

  • statistics of text; Zipf' law;
  • statistical methods of text processing;
  • text classification;
  • automatic error correction in text;
  • PoS tagging;
  • semantic text analysis;
  • frame theories; Romanian FrameNet;
  • Word Sense Disambiguation;
  • associative lexicons;
  • phonosemantics;
  • ontology creation;
  • formal grammars;
  • machine translation;
  • sentiment analysis;
  • etc.
