This talk will be of interest to those of you who’d like to hear about language documentation and online linguistic databases.

In this talk, I will present ongoing work at the University of Melbourne on the development of models for online grammar development and browsing. We are constructing databases of parsed web text for as many languages as we have precision grammars, and supporting linguistic queries of various types over the datasets. I will outline our methodology for harvesting, preprocessing, parsing and indexing the data, as well as work in progress on different models for querying the data to support high-precision, high-throughput, multilingual linguistic exploration.

Reception to follow in same room.
