Expert systems created by students can help them to understand the rules of a language. These could be rules of grammar (e.g. comparatives and superlatives), spelling (e.g. how to pluralise), pronunciation (e.g. of '_ed' endings), etc. These systems can be built as group projects.

Why use the computer?
If students don't understand the rules of the system that they are trying to describe, then this will be revealed when their program is tested. It may be motivating for other students to try to find loophole in the system.
A way of handling exceptions can be programmed into the system. This can be used to cope with irregularity in language.
