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.

Meeting Description: 3rd International Conference on Georgian Language and Modern Technologies

Organized by:

Arnold Chikobava, Institute of Linguistics
Ivane Javakhishvili, Tbilisi State University

The 21st century has highlighted the role of computational technologies with respect to the preservation and development of national languages and cultures. Processing of linguistic data by means of up-to-date technologies is a necessary condition for the full-scale functioning of natural languages. Therefore, the overall inclusion of the Georgian language into the cyberspace has been an urgent task: creation of text corpora, electronic libraries, software for e-learning of languages and for translation.

The aim of the conference is to present what has been done in the field, to sum up outcomes, to set future objectives, and to share experience.
Linguistic Subfield: Computational Linguistics; Text/Corpus Linguistics
Subject Language: Georgian
LL Issue: 24.318
