Abstract:

The last decade has seen computational implementations of large
hand-crafted natural language grammars in formal frameworks such as
Tree-Adjoining Grammar (TAG), Combinatory Categorical Grammar (CCG),
Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG), and Lexical Functional Grammar
(LFG). Grammars in these frameworks typically associate linguistically
motivated rich descriptions (Supertags) with words. With the availability
of parse-annotated corpora, grammars in the TAG and CCG frameworks have
also been automatically extracted while maintaining the linguistic
relevance of the extracted Supertags. In these frameworks, Supertags are
designed so that complex linguistic constraints are localized to operate
within the domain of those descriptions. While this localization increases
local ambiguity, the process of disambiguation (Supertagging) provides a
unique way of combining linguistic and statistical information.

This volume investigates the theme of employing statistical approaches with
linguistically motivated representations and its impact on Natural Language
Processing tasks. In particular, the contributors describe research in
which words are associated with Supertags that are the primitives of
different grammar formalisms including Lexicalized Tree-Adjoining Grammar
(LTAG).

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $65,000. This money will go to help 
keep the List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as 
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These 
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return 
(U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact 
your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match 
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your 
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the 
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple 
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without 
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company 
operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
