Meeting Description: Statistical parsing of morphologically-rich languages (MRLs) and syntactic analysis of non-canonical languages (NCL) have shown several similar properties and challenges in recent research. Therefore, this year we organize a joint workshop of these two research communities, to foster cross-pollination of ideas and technology for both.

Statistical parsing of morphologically-rich languages has repeatedly been shown to exhibit non-trivial challenges including, among others, sparse lexica in the face of rich inflectional systems, parsing deficiency in the face of free word order and treebank annotation idiosyncrasies in the face of morphosyntactic interactions.

Similar problems arise for parsing of non-canonical languages. Besides technical issues such as lexical sparseness and ad-hoc structures, we also face theoretical problems including constructions that do not occur, or very seldom occur, in standard language, such as verbless sentences or complex hashtags.

The first joint SPMRL-SANCL workshop addresses both the challenge of parsing MRLs and NCL. It provides a forum for researchers addressing the often overlapping issues of both fields with the goal of identifying cross-cutting issues in the annotation and parsing methodology for such languages.
