Compilers are tools typically used to create binary we call software. Kenneth Miller has some interesting thoughts on extending the metaphor (and tools) to both human and programming languages.

After a brief introduction of existing compiler technology, Kenneth discusses his ideas that include:

• type checking natural languages

• probabilistic type inference

• linguistic analysis algebra

Leading to some interesting tools and conclusions.
