(e.g., as rules in a preprocessing step, as linguistic features in
a statistical system, as filters for pruning a search space, as priors

[T4] Research that demonstrates the benefits of using NLP techniques to
help some particular linguistic studies. For instance, given some
language data, which language family should a particular language
belong to? How do languages interact with each other? How do
language evolve over the time? What are the main differences between
two dialects of the same languages (e.g., British English and American
