Pinned toot

Hey everyone. I am a PhD Student in Computational Linguistics. My main research interest is computational linguistics for under resourced languages. I am particularly interested in computational linguistics for Bantu languages because of the extremely complex morphology that they bring to the table.

I am also doing research in sentiment analysis on stance detection and irony/sarcasm detection. Most of my research is on machine learning approaches.

Til about the hyphenat package for latex and the \nohyphen command.

Really wish I would have know about that two years ago.

I got to see a really interesting talk by Michael Adams about the linguistic reality of slang. Really cool even though I don't do anything in that domain.
