Workshop on Lexical and Grammatical Resources for Language Processing

In Dublin, Ireland with COLING 2014

Endorsed by SIGLEX.

The workshop aimed to bring together members of the language-resource (LR) landscape, focusing on complex linguistic knowledge that requires linguistic expertise, e.g. on dictionaries, ontologies and grammars. Such manually-built resources are key to the development of natural language processing (NLP) tools and applications. The workshop intended to strengthen the cohesion of the scientific ‘production chain’ spanning from the construction of LRs by linguists to their exploitation in hybrid or symbolic NLP. It is necessary to increase mutual awareness between researchers along this production chain, regarding their activities, skills and needs, in view of improving the building processes of the resources, their validation and their exploitation.
