In this paper, I discuss basic elements of the biolinguistic approach to language and language processing. First, I provide evidence that linguistic expressions have hierarchical structure where asymmetric relations hold. Second, I relate biolinguistics to language processing, and I discuss central aspects of natural language processing based on the properties of natural languages. Third, I identify some connections between biology, language, and information processing.
