Honored for significant contributions to symbolic-statistical methods for NLP, multilinguality, and the interdisciplinary study of language.
Congratulations to Philip Resnik, who the Association for Computational Linguistics has named to its tenth group of Fellows, "for significant contributions to symbolic-statistical methods for natural language processing, multilinguality, and the interdisciplinary study of language."
Philip joins Professor Emerita Bonnie Dorr, elected in 2016, as the second Maryland professor among the Fellows, but he is also joined among the 2020 Fellows by Noah Smith, who in 2001 received a B.A. in Linguistics and a B.S. in Computer Science from Maryland. Now Associate Professor at the University of Washington, Smith wrote an honors thesis on "Detection of translational equivalence" with Philip, and one with Norbert Hornstein titled "Ellipsis happens and deletion is how."
