About this research group
The Language and Language Technology Group (LLTG) is a research and development group for language-related technologies. It has its origins in the Norwegian Computing Centre for the Humanities, founded in 1973, and its successors including the HIT centre, the Norwegian Term Bank, AKSIS, and Uni Digital.
The main focus of the group is research and the development of tools and infrastructure related to: language corpora and treebanks, grammar development, and large-scale text mining, e.g. information extraction and corpus-based methodologies for social science and humanistic research, and for corpus-based lexicography. We work with diverse corpora, including parallel corpora, learner corpora, speech corpora, and social media corpora. Some group members are also part of the department’s Centre for Big Data Analysis. Other expertise includes the development of online and printed dictionaries, and solutions for critical text editions.
The group has a broad portfolio of national and international research projects, many of which are collaborations with researchers at the University of Bergen, especially the Faculty of Humanities and the Faculty of Social Sciences. Other partners and clients include The Research Council of Norway, The Norwegian Language Council, the National Library, Norwegian School of Economics, The Norwegian Directorate for Education and Training, and several other state departments.
