The workshop is aimed at enhancing the linguistic dimension in the CL
spectrum, as well as at strengthening the focus on explanatory rather than
engineering aspects. The broader theme concerns the relations between
GRAMMAR and LEXICON, but the workshop is supposed to be
on burning issues from that domain such as:
Linguistically oriented issues: valency, and some related special
linguistic phenomena such as diathesis; lexicon and morphology (incl.
derivational morphology and morphosyntactic features in lexicons and
relation to semantics); lexicons and discourse (e.g. connectors, alternative
Lexicon/Grammar interface: types of information in lexical entries;
linguistic vs. encyclopaedic information in the dictionary; syntax and
phraseology (microsyntax), the grammar of idioms;
Computationally related issues: the role of lexicons in grammar
formalisms; lexicons and grammars vs. corpora and treebanks; annotation
standards; valency dictionaries;
Semantically driven issues such as semantic representation and
NLP oriented topics: use of lexicons, gazeteers and other man-made or
machine-learnt lexical resources in NLP applications; multiword
in lexicons and grammars.
The workshop is intended as a lively forum touching upon issues that
be of interest (and, possibly, an inspiration for application both in theory
and in practice) for a broader research community with different
linguistic, computational or natural language processing.
