- Published Version
We have investigated a number of problems in the field of computational linguistics. The position of minority languages on the web is of interest from both cultural and technical aspects, and leads to problems such as the existence of such pages, their penetration within surrounding official languages, and web searching strategies. The use of non-roman scripts yields several areas of enquiry such as OCR, where an engineering approach is needed, the limitations of Unicode that are experienced by some oriental languages, and the approach to tackling a living recent script in Africa. Some work on language morphology has been undertaken, but more remains to be done. This is ongoing, both as a linguistics research target, and for applications in word processing and applied text analysis. We have applied the area of formal grammars to heraldry, and we envisage applications in similar colour- and shape-restricted domains.
