Assistant Professor in Computational Linguistics and Head of Discipline

Research Interests

“My main areas of interest are Corpus Linguistics and Natural Language Processing. I am interested all aspects of corpus creation and the linguistic annotation of corpora, and in developing language processing tools for Irish for the automatic annotation of texts, e.g. morphological analysers and generators, rule-based part-of-speech taggers, chunkers and parsers, and machine translation language transfer rules. Hand-crafted resources such as these are used by many language technology applications including search engines, spelling and grammar checkers, speech synthesis and speech recognition, computer-aided language learning, computer-aided translation systems, and many others.”
