Subject: New MSc: Lexical Computing and Lexicography

	 MSc in Lexical Computing and Lexicography
		 ITRI, University of Brighton

			To start: October 2002

		 A groundbreaking MSc programme

The MSc links two fast-growing areas in research and commerce. 
Modern dictionaries are compiled through increasing use of language
technology, while language technology applications demand lexical
resources of ever-increasing quality to improve their performance.

Combining theory and practical training, the course will equip
students to analyse language data, write entries for dictionaries and
computer lexicons, plan lexical resource projects and process language
corpora by automatically extracting salient information. It presents
an ideal opportunity for recent graduates in languages, linguistics or
computer science to acquire specialized skills and for experienced
professionals to build on their expertise. 

The course is designed for both full and part-time study. 

The contact hours for each taught module are compressed into an
intensive week. Individual modules may be taken as standalone courses
for professional development, with attendance in Brighton only
required for the intensive week.

The Information Technology Research Institute is a specialist research
institute dedicated to language engineering and computational
linguistics. The course takes place in Brighton, Britain's newest
seaside city, a vibrant, exciting and cosmopolitan place, one hour
from London.
