Colloquium: Lexical-Semantic Relations from Theoretical and Practical Pespectives
The Institut für Deutsche Sprache in Mannheim (Germany) is holding a colloquium
on various theoretical and practical aspects of lexical semantic relations on
5th-6th June 2008. The colloquium will address specific semantic, lexicographic
and computational issues on a scope of meaning relations, particularly on those
which have traditionally been classified as paradigmatic sense relations. Papers
will explore different linguistic and methodological approaches to the
construction of relations of contrast and meaning equivalence in various
languages such as German, English and Swedish. They will also look at various
semantic models, the use of the Internet as a lexical resource for antonymy
retrieval, as well as the theory and applications of reference databases such as
GermaNet. The subject of sense-related items in dictionaries will also be
explored from both a technical and lexicographic perspective.
This colloquium intends to provide specialists from different disciplines and
areas with the opportunity to present ongoing projects and research findings in
the field. It is also aimed at stimulating dialogue and exchange of thoughts and
ideas not only among experts, but as it will be open to the general public it
will also offer a forum for public discussion among scholars. (No registration
