Dr. Elaine Ui Dhonnchadha

Assistant Professor (C.L.C.S.)

Dr Elaine Uí Dhonnchadha is Assistant Professor in Computational Linguistics and M.Phil Coordinator for the Centre for Language and Communication Studies. Her research interests include corpus linguistics, morphology and syntax, and the development of language processing tools for Irish, e.g. morphological analysers and generators, rule-based part-of-speech taggers, chunkers and parsers, and machine translation language transfer rules. Such language-specific rule-based resources are essential components of many language technology applications including search engines, spelling and grammar checkers, speech synthesis and speech recognition, computer-aided language learning, machine translation systems, and many others. Prior to joining Trinity College, Elaine worked as a researcher in Institiúid Teangeolaíochta Éireann (The Linguistics Institute of Ireland), as a Lecturer in Dublin City University and as a Systems Analyst and Programmer in a number of software development companies.
