Subject: What is computational linguistics?

Would someone in HUMANIST provide us with a simple (words that poor
engineers can understand) explanation of the term computational
linguistics. A representative problem of some kind would be helpful.

Please reply direct via e-mail to crisp@engr.uark.edu [no, see below]

[ Replies should go to the list. Perhaps they might deal more generally
with the relationship between computational linguistics and humanities
computing -- Allen, today's Humanist Editor]

Thanx in advance.
