The goal of the workshop is to discuss different corpus-based approaches to the
automatic processing of paraphrases and nominal structures. This workshop also
aims to evaluate to what extent the analysis of paraphrases and nominal
structures can improve the quality of NLP applications.
Finally, this workshop might constitute a platform for the exchange of resources
and tools derived from research projects. Althoughparaphrasing and
nominalization are established as independent research fields, there exists a
close connection between them: nominalizations can be understood as a kind of
We believe there is a need to bring together linguists and computer scientists,
and we invite unpublished contributions related to issues in these fields with a
special emphasis on -though not limited to:
- Paraphrasing: scope and typology
- Methods for paraphrase extraction, recognition and generation
- Paraphrase corpora compilation
- Formalisms for paraphrase representation
- Multilingual paraphrasing
- Nominalization as a paraphrase subtype
- Nominalizations: analysis and classification
- Semantic Role Labelling for nominalization argument structure
- Recognition and interpretation of nominalizations
- Distribution of semantic selations among NPs, specially nominalized NPs
- Nominalizations in support verb constructions
