Research Problems in Natural Language Processing - A brief Overview

Authors(1) :-P. Selvaperumal

Natural Language processing field concerns with computers processing human languages. Natural language processing (NLP) can be categorized into text and speech processing and also as Natural language understanding and Natural language generation. Various problems occur in language processing at every level of processing including morpheme/phoneme, syntactic, semantic, pragmatic, and Discourse level. This paper gives a brief overview of various research areas concerns with the text and speech processing. This assumes the significance keeping in mind the various applications like Dialogue system, Question and answering system, Information retrieval system, Information extraction system, Expert system etc both in text and speech processing areas. All the applications together enable the community to construct an intelligent system that process and generate human language just as a human being.
