The group's research projects have included ones on language processing resources and tools, on logic and formalisms, on front ends e.g. for database and unstructured information access, and on speech processing. More recent and current projects, funded under both UK and European Programmes, have involved further development of tools and processors, automatic summarising, text and spoken message retrieval; natural language processing for formal specifications; and the acquisition of lexical knowledge and construction of multilingual lexical knowledge bases. Projects with individual pages are:
- Lexical Acquisition for the Biomedical Domain (no project web-page, see Anna Korhonen's page).
- Studying the appropriateness of different formulations of a discourse relation in context (no project web-page, see Advaith Siddharthan's page).
