The 29th International Conference on Lexis and Grammar will take place in
Belgrade, Serbia, September 15 - 18, 2010.
The Conference welcomes innovative papers on the formal description of
languages, as well as on the construction, management and use of language
resources, including manually constructed lexicons and grammars. In addition, it
aims at bringing together linguists and computer scientists. The Conference will
combine a general session and a thematic session.

Jurij Apresjan (Russian Academy of Sciences)
Greville G. Corbett (University of Surrey)
Submissions for the general session may address any of the topics of the Conference:
- Lexis: lexical phenomena and their processing with special attention to
possibility to formalize them for various purposes such as text analysis,
multi-word units, processing of monolingual and multilingual corpora, etc.
- Grammatical phenomena and their processing
- The interface between lexis and grammar
- Theoretical and methodological innovations concerning processing of lexis and
- Interlingual similarities and differences in the field of lexis and grammar
(contrastive approach, aligned corpora, etc.)
- exploitation of language resources (including manually constructed lexicons
and grammars) for language processing (including parsing and natural language
generation as well as applications such as, information retrieval, information
The thematic session of the 29th International Conference on Lexis and Grammar
is dedicated to the problem of ambiguity and its implications both in
linguistics and natural language processing. Ambiguity is one of the main issues
both in linguistics and NLP because:
- it arises on the large scale in all languages;
- the resolution of ambiguity is indispensable for humans to understand any message;
- the resolution of ambiguity represents a preliminary step in automatic text
processing that has to be done before any other application (analysis, machine
The articles that are dealing with following aspects of ambiguity would be welcome:
- lexical, morphosyntactic and syntactic ambiguity, as well as ambiguity between
frozen and non-frozen expressions;
- the automatic treatment of ambiguity, since the number of tags assigned to a
word form is proportional to its degree of ambiguity.
