Technology in the Field of Language Technology

The organisation of the technologies follows the structure of the upcoming second edition of the HLT-Survey:Language Technology - A Survey of the State of the Art. For each technology, we provide a definition, pointers to the most important players and resources, and the corresponding section from the first edition of the HLT-Survey.
