Message 1: Word Senses and Multi-linguality: ACL/SIGLEX Workshop

Date: Fri, 22 Sep 2000 14:18:21 -0400 (EDT)
From: Nancy M. Ide <>
Subject: Word Senses and Multi-linguality: ACL/SIGLEX Workshop

 ACL 2000 Workshop 


Sponsored by the ACL Special Interest Group for the Lexicon (SIGLEX) 

 9:00-12:00 AM, October 7, 2000 
 Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

The SIGLEX workshop on Word Senses and Multi-linguality addresses
problems of word sense disambiguation and delineation of appropriate
sense distinctions, with specific emphasis on approaches that involve
more than one language and the ways in which observations about
cross-linguistic equivalence affect our consideration of sense
divisions in the individual languages. More generally, we seek to
foster discussion and exchanges of insight in any area of
computational linguistics where a non-monolingual approach to word
sense issues is being taken.
