 Workshop on Morphological and Phonological Learning

 Philadelphia, PA
 11 July 2002

 Sixth Meeting of the
 ACL Special Interest Group in Computational Phonology
 in cooperation with
 ACL Special Interest Group in Natural Language Learning
 sponsored by the
 Association for Computational Linguistics


 The Workshop on Morphological and Phonological Learning will
be held July 11 2002, immediately after the ACL-02 meetings
vat the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia

or semi-automated discovery of morphology and/or phonology,
and the evaluation and comparison of morphology learning


The list of papers to be presented is as follows:

Invited Speaker: David Yarowsky
"Bootstrapping morphological analyzers from monolingual and
bilingual data--building multimodal bridges"

 Utpal Sharma, Jugal Kalita, and Rajib Das
"Unsupervised Learning of Morphology for Building Lexicon
for a Highly Inflectional Language"

Matthew G. Snover, Gaja E. Jarosz, and Michael R. Brent
"Unuspervised Learning of Morphology Using a Novel Directed
Search Algorithm: Taking the First Step"

 Mathias Creutz and Krista Lagus
"Unsupervised Discovery of Morphemes"

 Sylvain Neuvel and Sean A. Fulop
"Unsupervised Learning of Morphology Without Morphemes"

 Invited Paper: Mikhail Belkin and John Goldsmith
"Using the eigenvectors of the bigram graph to infer
morpheme identity"

 Marco Baroni, Johannes Matiasek, and Harald Trost
"Unsupervised discovery of morphologically related words
based on orthographic and semantic similarity"

 Invited Paper: Adam Albright and Bruce Hayes
"Modeling English Past Tense Intuitions with Minimal

 Karin Mueller
"Probabilistic Context-Free Grammars for Phonology"
