The linguist will provide expertise in phonetics to tune dictionaries
for text-to-speech synthesis. S/he will also be responsible for tuning
extensive grammars for understanding names and movie/video game/titles. 
This tuning will involve tuning speech recognition grammars. The

linguist with a computational linguistics background would contribute to
advancing these protocols, e.g. intelligent searches of movie titles
(for which the company currently maintains a version of a solution).
