The LINGUIST List invites undergraduate and graduate students as well as particularly motivated senior high school students to the 2017 summer internship program.
Interns at LINGUIST List have the opportunity to participate in the daily operations of the LINGUIST List, including editing submissions to the LINGUIST List and correspondence with linguists.
Apart from that interns will have the opportunity to work under the supervision of local or visiting faculty at The LINGUIST List on concrete research projects related to language and STEM sub-disciplines, language documentation, as well as engineering of software solutions and algorithms, mathematical concepts and methods, and technologies related to speech and language data.
Depending on individual interests or skills interns can get involved in the following LINGUIST List related projects for a certain proportion of their work time:
- GeoLing: A web-application that maps LINGUIST List events, institutions, resources on a GIS system for mobile devices and access
- Voice interface: Development of dialogs and speech interfaces for use with Amazon Echo/Alexa, Google Home, Cortana, etc. to provide LINGUIST List information over these voice systems/interfaces, develop new linguistic “skills” and extend existing ones
- Improvement of the new LINGUIST List website and content, applications like Ask-a-Ling, and new services and applications
Interns will get an opportunity to also work with:
- General Ontology for Linguistic Description (GOLD) or the Lexical Enhancement via the GOLD Ontology (LEGO)
- The DAPS (Detecting Anomalous Parse Structures) project
- Marathi Phonation-Type Contrast Typology and Resourcing
- Chimpoto corpus analyses and annotation, ELAN format transformation
- Free Linguistic Environment, Grammar Engineering (Morphology, Syntax, Finite State and LFG-based) for Slavic and Asia-Pacific languages
