Language, Logic and Information


The Language, Logic and Information (LLI) group, one of the six research groups within the institute for language sciences, studies the representation of information in language, its usage for computational systems, and the application of such systems for linguistic data. Linguistic information is analyzed at all linguistic levels, from small units (words and morphemes) to large units (texts and their collections). The group uses logical and computational methods in linguistic modelling and develops linguistic resources and tools that are embedded in general research infrastructures. The group is composed of 13 researchers, 6 PhD students and 2 postdoc researchers. Funding is mainly through university funds and national (NWO) and international (ERC) grants, see projects for details. Major collaborations include the CLARIN and CLARIAH infrastructures, as well as collaborated projects of individual researchers with researchers in Europe and the Americas. Interaction with non-academic organizations is shaped through collaboration with representatives of the cultural heritage sector and with the data science industry.
