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.

Meeting Description: NooJ is a linguistic development environment that allows linguists to formalize several levels of linguistic phenomena:

- Typography and spelling
- Lexicons of simple words, multiword units and discontinuous expressions
- Inflectional, derivational and agglutinative morphology
- Local and structural syntax
- Transformational syntax and paraphrase generation
- Semantic analysis and machine translation

For each of these levels NooJ provides linguists with one or more formal tools specifically designed to facilitate the description of each phenomenon, as well as parsing/development/debugging tools designed to be as computationally efficient as possible, from Finite-State to Turing machines. The integration of all the linguistic levels in one compatible platform distinguishes NooJ from other computational linguistic frameworks which provide a unique formalism, incompatible with others.

As a corpus processing tool, NooJ allows researchers in various social sciences to extract information from corpora by applying sophisticated queries based on concepts and relations (rather than word forms) and automatically build concordances, add semantic annotations, and perform statistical analyses. NooJ has been endorsed by the Meta-Share CESAR Project of the European Community, is now available as a JAVA open source package and runs under Windows LINUX and Mac OSX platforms. NooJ linguistic modules for over 20 languages are freely available at www.nooj4nlp.net.

The NooJ conference intends to:

- Give NooJ users and researchers in Linguistics and in Computational Linguistics the opportunity to meet and share their experience as developers, researchers and teachers
- Present to NooJ users the latest linguistic resources and NLP applications developed for/with NooJ, its latest functionalities, as well as its future developments
- Offer researchers and graduate students two tutorials (one basic and one advanced) to help them parse corpora and build NLP applications using NooJ
- Provide the occasion to present and discover the recent developments of NooJ itself (v3)

Topics of Interest:

Linguistic resources: Typography, spelling, morphology, lexical analysis, local syntax, structural syntax, transformational analysis, paraphrase generation, semantic annotations, semantic analysis
