Computational linguistics applies the ideas of two overlapping fields of philosophy: the philosophy of language and logic. The philosophy of language considers the question, "How does meaning emerge from a string of words or symbols?" Computational linguistics involves decoding a string of unfamiliar words or symbols to deduce their meaning. Anyone can try their hand at computational linguistics by working the practice puzzles from the North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad. Middle and high school students who discover they have an affinity for solving computational linguistics puzzles can register to take the written NACLO exam at a variety of locations later this month. nacloweb.org/practice.php#sample_problems
