It's not clear to me whether or not someone whose work aims to improve an NLP system may be called a "Computational Linguist" even when she/he doesn't modify the algorithm directly by coding.
Let's consider the following activities:
Annotation for Machine Learning: analysis of Morphology, Syntax, POS tagging Annotation, analysis, and annotation of entities (NER) and collocations; supporting content categorization; chunking; word sense disambiguation. Recording of technical issues of the annotation tool to improve its reliability. Recording of linguistic and logical particular rules adopted by the research team who develops the NLP algorithm to improve consistency between annotation and criteria previously adopted to train the NLP.
May be these activities considered "Computational Linguistics"? If not, which is their professional category and how should they be included in the resume in a word which synthesizes them?
