  • translation sciences, discourse analysis, philologies, literature study, exegetics, text linguistics
  • cognitive linguistics, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, cybernetics, applied computer science, study of human-computer interaction
  • ontology research, informatics, bioinformatics, statistics
  • archaelogy, study of history, social linguistics, text-based social studies

Digital research material and computational methods

Digital research material and computational tools are a crucial part of the common research infrastructure for Humanities and Social Sciences. When dealing with linguistic content, they involve
  • Language resources range from collections of raw documents and multimedia and speech databases to linguistic text corpora, arboretums, treebanks as well as lexical resources such as word lists, wordnets and dictionaries.
  • Language tools range from field linguist's tools to file converters and preprocessors to moprhological and syntactic analysers, language technological models and speech technological models as well as programming tools for language engineers.

CSC maintains the Language Bank of Finland, which is a collection of linguistic resources, tools and related services.
