As a result of completing the Minor in Linguistic Computing offered by the Department of Linguistics, students will be able to collect and analyze large amounts of language data. Students will be able to use both ready-made software and customized computer scripts that they write to accomplish specific analysis tasks. Students will become proficient with computer scripting for linguistic analysis with at least the Python programming language–other programming languages will be presented as needed, given the project at hand. Students will create linguistic artifacts (for example, lexicons, grammars, corpora, etc.) with computational methods in support of individual student interests and needs. Students will communicate clearly the creation process and the analysis of linguistic data in writing and speech.
