11th International Workshop on Tree Adjoining Grammars and Related Formalisms (TAG+11)
26-28 September 2012
University Paris-Diderot, Paris, France
The Workshop on Tree-Adjoining Grammars and related formalisms (TAG+) is a biennial workshop series that fosters exchange of ideas among linguists, psycholinguists and computer scientists interested in modeling natural language using formal grammars. The workshop series, since 1990, has demonstrated productive interactions among researchers and practitioners interested in various aspects of the Tree-Adjoining Grammar formalism and its relationship to other grammar formalisms, such as combinatory categorial grammar, dependency grammars, Minimalist grammars, HPSG, and LFG; hence the ‘+’ in the name of the workshop.
Tree-Adjoining Grammars (TAG) and related lexicalized grammar formalisms provide mathematical tools to model natural language and the scaffolding to encode linguistic generalizations in a principled manner. In the past, this workshop has helped identify similarities and differences between the above formalisms, leading to the shared development of broad-coverage grammars, transfer of parsing and machine learning algorithms from one formalism to another and to new insights into the properties of different formalisms and their capacity for linguistic explanation. It is our expectation that this edition of the workshop will continue enabling cross-fertilization of ideas that combine the representational flexibility of TAG-like grammar formalisms with the robustness afforded by machine learning techniques to produce a deeper insight into modeling of natural language.
The first day of the meeting will be devoted to a series of tutorial presentations, designed to introduce attendees to a range of TAG-related topics.
