In this paper, we present an overview of recent advances in selected areas of computational linguistics. We discuss relation of traditional levels of language - phonetics/phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, and discourse - to the areas of computational linguistics research. Then the discussion about the development of the systems of automatic morphological analysis is given. We present various morphological classifications of languages, discuss the models that are necessary for this type of systems, and then argue that an approach based on "analysis through generation" gives several advantages during development and the grammar models that are used. After this, we discuss some popular application areas like information retrieval, question answering, text summarization and text generation. Finally, usage of graph methods in computational linguistics is dealt with.
