Language, logic and information


The research group `Language, logic and information' studies logical and computational aspects of language. Our research aims to build linguistically sound models of syntax, semantics and pragmatics, using approaches as diverse as machine-learning, computational cognitive models and formal logic.

Key themes

  • Semantic and syntactic parsing and language processing
  • Semantics, pragmatics, reasoning with language
  • Logical theories of language and their use in computational linguistics
  • The use of machine learning for linguistic modeling
  • Bridging the gap between theory and social and practical application by turning models into useful real-world tools
  • Developing linguistic resources and tools that are embedded in general research infrastructures.
