Linguistiques de corpus et mathématiques du continu

Abstract : New technologies have markedly changed the way linguists relate to their object of study. An impressive amount of data about language is now available, covering most of its usages - at least in the written medium - immeasurably more than what was on hand merely a decade ago. Moreover, linguistic resources are getting more comprehensive than ever (e.g. electronic dictionaries), while the reliability of processing tools keeps increasing (e.g. syntactic parsers). Together they constitute a new tool for scrutinizing the phenomena of language in ways that were not conceivable before, a bit like Galileo's telescope suddenly revealed astronomic phenomena that could not have been perceived without it. Unsurprisingly, such an observation tool is having a profound impact upon both the methods and expectations of computer‑modeled linguistics and its applications to automated language processing.
