Research Group in Digital Linguistics

Research Group in Digital Linguistics

The Research Group in Digital Linguistics works in the intersection of digital technologies and formal linguistics. Its aim is to produce models and applications that allow for the integration of these two fields as digital linguistics. We cooperate with partners in academic as well as industrial milieus working on several independent projects. Starting in the early 2000s, the group has produced resources and applications supporting teaching and research in linguistics as well as second language learning n Norwegian.

Below you find a list of our project partners, and links to some of our applications and services.
