   processes, statistics, differential and difference equations, fuzzy
   logic and set theory, function theory etc.), on all levels of
   linguistic analysis.

2. Applications of methods, models, or findings from quantitative
   linguistics to problems of natural language processing, machine
   translation, language teaching, documentation and information

   construction, sampling and test theory.
