Especially, its contribution to the linguistics has been considerably substantial. Since, the computational linguistics, that is, the branch of linguistics in which the techniques of computer science are applied to the analysis and synthesis of language and speech, has already become one of ways to find out possible solutions to the topics under hot discussions and this linguistic field is popularizing the value of computers in using language investigations. Here, one needs to keep in mind that the development of the computer linguistics was also essential while speaking of the role of computer aided spheres.
