This paper endeavors to   develop newer medium of  developing research questions by keeping in view both fields of SE and NLP in proper perspectives. An overview of the current state of art research in SE and NLP is presented. This is done by referring to the SE Body of Knowledge (SEBOK). Analogues to SEBOK, there are no separate Body of Knowledge available for the NLP/Computational Linguistics (CL). Hence whatever falls within the category of NLP/CL was considered in framing the research categories from the NLP/CL side. The paper concludes with future scope of the research presented.
