Featured Linguist!

Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

FYI: New Journal: Journal of Language Modelling


Author: Adam Przepiórkowski

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics
Text/Corpus Linguistics

FYI Body: It is our pleasure to announce a new open-access electronic periodical: the Journal of Language Modelling (JLM). The journal is free for authors and readers alike. All articles will be published under a Creative Commons licence.

JLM is a peer-reviewed journal which aims to bridge the gap between theoretical, formal and computational linguistics. Although a typical article will present linguistic generalisations – either their application in natural language processing or their discovery in language corpora – acceptable topics range from linguistic analyses sufficiently precise to be readily implemented to mathematical models of aspects of language, and further to computational systems making non-trivial use of linguistic insights.

We understand the discipline of language modelling very broadly. It includes, naturally, statistical language modelling, as construed in speech recognition or statistical machine translation, but it also covers formal linguistic descriptions of phonological, morphological, syntactic, semantic and pragmatic language phenomena; corpus linguistics as a tool for modelling language; and so on.

Papers are reviewed within less than three months of their receipt, and they appear on-line as soon as they have been accepted. There are no delays typical of traditional paper journals. Accepted articles are then collected in half-yearly issues and yearly volumes, with continuous page numbering, and are made available as hard copies via print on demand, at a nominal fee. On the other hand, Journal of Language Modelling has a fully traditional view of quality: all papers are carefully refereed by at least three reviewers, including at least one member of the Editorial Board, and they are only accepted if they adhere to the highest scientific, typographic and stylistic standards.

Articles can be submitted at:
