Computational Approaches to Tamil Linguistics
This work presents in some depth a comprehensive Natural Language
Understanding (NLU) system devised by the author that can account for
the linguistic principles of Tamil in computational phonology, morphology,
syntax and semantics and also define suitable computational algorithms
from a linguistic perspective.
The author has brought to bear an inter-disciplinary focus to natural
language processing and the understanding of natural languages by
computers. The latest computational theories and linguistic principles
have been employed in this work in a very systematic and
comprehensive manner to illustrate how language can be engineered
and automated in novel ways using computers.
