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: The analysis of complex words, compounds, and collocations has received
considerable attention in
linguistics, cognitive science and computational linguistics. Research on
these phenomena concerns
theoretical, experimental, and applied aspects relevant to all three disciplines.
This diverse and
interdisciplinary perspective lends itself particularly well to an ESSLLI
workshop on this topic.

The aim of the workshop is to stimulate a cross-disciplinary discussion that
will be of mutual benefit to
the three fields sketched above and that will provide a forum for junior and
senior researchers alike.

Relevant topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to, the following

- Cognitive and computational models for the interpretation of compounds and
- Experimental and computational methods for the analysis of compounds
and collocations
- Statistical models for the identification and classification of collocations
- Word formation, lexical semantics, and semantic compositionality
- Word formation at the interface of morphology and syntax

Invited Speakers:

Melanie Bell (Anglia Ruskin University)
Eduard Hovy (Carnegie Mellon University)
