Abstract:

CUM LAUDE Computerized Understanding of Morphology - Language Acquisition Under Development in Education is a unique attempt to develop a system of computer programs enabling a machine to understand the grammatical relationships between the various parts of speech in a natural language. In response to an analysis of current Computer-Assisted Language Instruction CALI programs, it is argued that the full capabilitiy of a computer in drilling students on elementary language grammar will be attained when a greater understanding of the morphology of languages is built into the computer. Such a approach ultimately would enable a computer not only to instruct a language dynamically in an educational capacity, but also to make available its usefulness to those language teachers not well trained in machine languages. This project includes the exemplary development of a system of programs which teaches the verb formations of three languages French German and English. The system is flexible such that the student has control over the selection of the verbs and tenses upon which he will be drilled. Author
