Artificial Intelligence in Computerized Linguistic Analysis.
This article explores whether or not it is possible for computers to be effectively used to analyze textual information. Computerization of human linguistic analysis would be enormously useful, because it would relieve many highly skilled linguistics professionals (researchers and teachers) from having to spend enormous amounts of time on the tedious task of analyzing the composition of tests based on educational materials. A general algorithm operationalized in a computer program is proposed for linguistic analysis. The researcher concludes that the proposed algorithm is effective, because it has been demonstrated to analyze a predicate of a simple informative sentence, effectively automating the task of linguistic analysis. It is asserted that this is a significant breakthrough in the field. Several matrices and screen captures appear throughout the article. (KFT)
