A natural language or an everyday language is an accustomed form of communication used by the people to speak, express and write. Besides, these languages are called natural because they are evolved naturally among the communities. Natural Language Processing is a very vital field in connection with Artificial Intelligence, where research has exponentially taken place. This research aims to explore the techniques that have been used to process the Assamese language, the focus will be basically on Parsing, Part-of-Speech tagging, Word-Sense Disambiguation, Machine Translation, WordNet.
