Mathias Creutz 


The course belongs to the MA Programme Linguistic Diversity in the Digital Age

  • study track: language technology
  • modules: Studies in Language Technology (LDA-T3100), Essentials in Language Technology (LDA-TA500), Comprehensive specialization in Language Technology (LDA-TB500)

This is an obligatory course for students of the study track in language technology, and elective for students of modules LDA-TA500 and LDA-TB500 

The course is available to students from other study tracks and degree programmes.




Students are advised to take this course in year 1 (semester 2). The course is offered every year during the spring term in period III or IV


After successfully completing the course

  • you can explain basic theory on finite-state automata and transducers,
  • you are able to design morphological lexica using finite-state technology,
  • you know how to write morpho-phonological rules in a finite-state framework,
  • you can apply machine learning methods to building models of morphology,
  • you understand the diversity of morphological structure in different languages and you know how to take these differences into account when designing computational models of morphology.
  • The course comprises lectures and individual exercises.
  • You also complete your own project work, which you document and present in class.
  • Additionally, there may be a final exam.
  • Some sessions require student attendance.
Edeltävät opinnot tai edeltävä osaaminen 
  • Morphology and syntax or equivalent (BA level)
  • Programming for linguists or equivalent (BA level)
  • Mathematics for linguists or equivalent (BA level)
  • Machine learning for linguists or equivalent (BA level)
Suositeltavat valinnaiset opinnot 
  • Linguistics in the digital age (MA level)
  • Computational Syntax (MA level)
  • Computational Semantics (MA level)
  • This course teaches you models and methods for automatic morphological analysis and generation. Different frameworks will be studied, such as rule-based finite-state technology and supervised and unsupervised learning of morphology.
  • The diversity of morphological structure in different languages is demonstrated together with suggestions on how to take these differences into account when designing computational models of morphology.

  • Web material and material distributed on the course
Oppimista tukevat aktiviteetit ja opetusmenetelmät 
  • There are lectures and exercise sessions.
  • Learning is promoted through hands-on assignments, such as pre-planned exercises and a project work that can be tuned towards the student’s own interests.
  • Exercises, instructions and additional course material are published on a web-based learning platform (Moodle).

Grading follows the standard scale 0 – 5.

The following aspects are taken into account in grading

  • Performance in the exercises
  • Performance in the project work
  • Performance in the final exam
  • Activity during lectures and exercise sessions.
