Topic:

The aim of the GL workshop is to bring together diverse contributions in

- Critical Perspectives

In this third workshop, the discussions will be centered, but not limited to,
the following topics:

- Building new resources
- Acquiring lexical information
- Maintaining resources
- Representing lexical information (i.e. polysemy, collocation links,
multiword expressions, predicate-argument structure)
- Using lexical information in applications
- Specialization and customization for specific applications
- Links between different frameworks
- Sharing lexical resources
- Multilinguality in the lexicon
- Standardization and evaluation

Key topics are:

- How to build a Generative Lexicon?
- How a Generative Lexicon can be extracted from existing ressources or corpora?
- How to connect qualia structures with other lexical information?
- How to use Qualia structures in NLP applications?
