For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

Programming (Haskell, Java, C, ML ), Data structures, Finite automata theory and formal languages.


The course gives the student an introduction to computer implementation, and applications, of natural language. The purpose of the course is to give an ability to understand and, to some extent, develop language technology applications. Participants with a background in computing science will also get a deeper understanding of the relationship between formal and natural languages as well as the boundaries for automated processing of natural language.


The course introduces theories and technologies within language technology:

  • Phonology

  • Morphology

  • Syntax

  • Semantic

  • Translation

As applications of these methods, the participants will build simple examples such as translation tools, language based computer - human interaction.
