Humans developed natural language to communicate; over past millennia, it has been the most efficient form of transferring the majority of information between individuals. With the advent of computing, large amounts of natural language text are stored in digital format. The study of computational linguistics helps link the significant power of the computer with the efficiency of communicating in natural language.
