Can I get /sci's opinion on linguistics?

Parsing human language is kind of a waste of time (at least as far as building UIs go).
The only time it's useful is with search engines or other kinds of web crawlers.

t. an unimaginative idiot

>Parsing human language is kind of a waste of time

Anything requiring NLP requires some kind of natural language parser.

Congratulations on expanding that acronym.

>>7766350
This is the shit I wanted to learn at school. It's like the algebra of human languages.
>>
>>7766350
If I hadn't go with STEM, I would probably have chosen to study linguistics.
>>
>>7766465
Except the P in NLP stands for processing retard.
>>
>>7766350
Even gayer than engineering. The asymptote of gayness factor approaches Linguistics.
>>
I always wanted to study it, but I want a job, so I only learn languages in my free time.
>>
>>7767575
Welp. I fucked up there...
>>
>>7766350
I like diachronic linguistics, as a hobby. But I don't really care about synchronic analysis. I imagine I wouldn't really enjoy any of it as a job either.
>>
>>7766350
formal theoretical linguistics is great
>>
>>7766350
that's an adjunct
>>
>>7766350
I actually decided to study CS instead of foreign languages because I loved formal linguistics so much. I'm an undergrad researcher in my University's natural language processing lab, and I love it; I'm going to try and stay for a masters at least.

Even though formal linguistics can be used for NLP, let's not forget how interesting it is to be able to study the mental computations that your brain performs when we use language and how they're essentially the same for pretty much every language that exists.

It's not, nouns can take a CP complement
>>
>>7768923
it's not in comp position.

>>7766350
The advanced shit on this is my favorite trolling scheme
Basically throw an integral in with the N making the compilation imply a bilaterally digressing state of what formatted the spec making the double N bar subject of the 'Compl' by the means of a lack of standardization of the point, compliments of the integral
>>
>>7768966
Oh, I see what you mean. I didn't notice that there was an N-bar above book.
>>
>>7768999
that's all I meant by it.
