Established by Prof. Mitkov in 1997, the Research Group in
Computational Linguistics is a highly successful one, delivering
cutting-edge research in a number of NLP areas such as anaphora
resolution, automatic abstracting, question answering, lexical
knowledge acquisition, text categorisation, named entity recognition,
information extraction, corpus construction and annotation, automatic
terminology processing, multilingual processing, and multiple-choice
question generation. To a large extent, this research has been
undertaken in projects funded by major UK funding bodies and
commercial partners.
