Clippers Discussion Group

Ling 7890.08, Autumn '16 / Spring '17
Tu 12:45–2:05, McPherson 2019 / Caldwell 171
Instructor: Michael White


This is a weekly forum open to anyone with an interest in computational linguistics. We plan a varied schedule of work in progress presentations and general discussion. We're aiming to keep things accessible to anyone with a basic understanding of linguistics. Computational linguists or potential computational linguists should attend on a regular basis and may sign up for 1 hour of credit (possibly 2 if presenting). Others (including undergraduates) are welcome to drop in on an ad hoc basis.


The schedule will be kept on the main Clippers page on the CLLT website.


Grades will be assigned according to attendance and participation. Students registering for multiple credits are required to present, while students registering for one credit are highly encouraged to present.
