Featured Linguist!

Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

ONE YEAR GRADUATE COURSE **STUDENTSHIPS AVAILABLE** ONE YEAR GRADUATE COURSE

- ------------------------------------------------------------------
COMPUTER SPEECH & LANGUAGE PROCESSING

UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE

DEPARTMENT OF ENGINEERING AND COMPUTER LABORATORY

ONE-YEAR M.PHIL COURSE

- ------------------------------------------------------------------

The course covers the theory and practice of speech and language
processing. It runs from early October to September and
consists of two terms lectures and practicals followed by a three
month project. The final degree is awarded on the basis of coursework,
examination and project.

Unlike some alternative programmes, the course aims to provide a
in-depth practical and theoretical grounding in the techniques
for speech and language processing which form the basis for today's
commercial and research prototype systems. There are strong links
with industry and the great majority of past students have gone on to
doctoral work or to jobs in industrial research laboratories.

Cambridge is a major international centre for research in both speech
and language processing. The course lecturers and demonstrators are
directly involved in leading edge research within the university and
in collaboration with other European and US industrial and academic
laboratories.

There are currently a number of EPSRC studentships available for the
course to qualifying applicants. We encourage applications from
students with a background in engineering, computer science,
linguistics and/or psychology.
