Program Description: The MA Linguistics and Web Technology offers the unique opportunity to study linguistic content and web technology combined. Among other things, you can deepen your knowledge of semantics and pragmatics, learn about the nature of the linguistic sign, about different ways of describing the meaning of words and sentences, and also about the interrelation of words in the human lexicon. But you will additionally gain knowledge about client-server communication, programming and relational databases.

You will get an overview of the methods and concepts used in linguistic engineering. One goal is to familiarize students with basic technologies and applications in the fields of speech and language processing. Furthermore, all component technologies will be critically evaluated with respect to their current and future potential in applications such as chat bots, machine translation, pedagogical software agents, and the Semantic Web.

Software development, principles of multimedia development and programming languages are additional aspects of engineering which will be in focus of your studies. The main goal of Linguistic Engineering is to convert linguistic data, models, and approaches into a digital format. Therefore you need to acquire fundamental knowledge about theoretical linguistics applied linguistics and computational linguistics.
