MSc in Lexical Computing and Lexicography ITRI, University of Brighton To start: October 2002 A groundbreaking MSc programme The MSc links two fast-growing areas in research and commerce. Modern dictionaries are compiled through increasing use of language technology, while language technology applications demand lexical resources of ever-increasing quality to improve their performance. Combining theory and practical training, the course will equip students to analyse language data, write entries for dictionaries and computer lexicons, plan lexical resource projects and process language corpora by automatically extracting salient information. It presents an ideal opportunity for recent graduates in languages, linguistics or computer science to acquire specialized skills and for experienced professionals to build on their expertise. The course is designed for both full and part-time study. The contact hours for each taught module are compressed into an intensive week. Individual modules may be taken as standalone courses for professional development, with attendance in Brighton only required for the intensive week. The Information Technology Research Institute is a specialist research institute dedicated to language engineering and computational linguistics. The course takes place in Brighton, Britain's newest seaside city, a vibrant, exciting and cosmopolitan place, one hour from London.
