Subject: Graduate Studies in Computational Linguistics at Georgetown
The Department of Linguistics at Georgetown University offers
four concentrations leading to a MS or PhD in Linguistics:
Theoretical Linguistics, Sociolinguistics, Applied Linguistics
and COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS. Applications are invited for Fall
1997 (application deadline: February 1).

Applicants to the PhD program in Computational Linguistics should
have a Master's in linguistics or computer science (or a closely
related field). Others are encouraged to apply to the MS
program, which provides the foundation in linguistic theory and
computer science necessary for more advanced work. A limited
number of fellowships and scholarships are available, and local
employment opportunities are excellent for PhD and advanced MS
students. Part-time students are welcome. Vist our Web site for
more information about the program, on-line courses, and links to
the catalogue and application materials:

In addition to a wide variety of offerings in linguistics
(Theoretical, Socio-, Applied), the program offers courses in
machine translation, neural networks, natural language
processing, information retrieval and corpus linguistics. Current
students are engaged in research in machine translation (ASL,
Japanese, Spanish, etc.), natural language processing
(intelligent agents, anaphora resolution, visual representation
of textual data) and speech processing, among other areas.
