Interdisciplinary Workshop on the Identification and Representation
 of Verb Features and Verb Classes

 February 28 - March 1, 2005

 Computational Linguistics and Psycholinguistics
 Saarland University, Saarbr�cken, Germany

 http://www.coli.uni-sb.de/conf/Verb-Workshop-05/

------------------------------------------------------------------

Workshop Description

Verbs and their features have always received wide attention in
various disciplines concerned with linguistic research, since their
contribution is essential to the structure and the interpretation of
language. In recent years, the availability of new lexical resources
and increasingly large corpora, the application of empirical methods
and statistical algorithms and the development of technical devices
such as eye-trackers and magnetic resonance imaging has led to
advances in several linguistic areas. This interdisciplinary workshop
brings together researchers from linguistic domains such as
lexicography, computational linguistics, psycholinguistics, and
neuroscience, in order to discuss their perspectives on verb senses,
verb features and verb classes.

The aim of this workshop is to contribute to an exchange of new ideas
and methods. The focus of the workshop is on the identification and
representation of verb features at the syntax-semantic interface and
verb classes as generalisations and organisational means for
verbs. The workshop addresses questions such as (but not restricted
to):
- how human beings describe and classify verbs,
- which verb features are universal vs. language-specific,
- which verb features are relevant to distinguish verb senses,
- how we can obtain verb features and verb classes automatically,
- which kinds of verb features and verb classes are useful for NLP
applications,
- which kinds of features and classes are useful for capturing human
processing generalisations,
- how verbs are represented in the brain.
