Toward Morphology and Beyond

Deadline for submission: 27 February 2011

Computational morphology has become over the years one of the
Computational Linguistics subfields, with an annual competition, Morpho
Challenge and a recurring workshop, SigMorPhon. The objectives of the
Morpho Challenge evaluation campaigns are to compare the results and
algorithms of various morphological systems on a task of morpheme
segmentation and analysis. The competition involves five languages :
English, German, Finnish, Turkish and Arabic. The researches presented at
the SigMorPhon workshops deal on the whole with phonology and

Besides these objectives, systems centered on morphology produce other
information, of a linguistic nature, in the course of the processes they
perform. And these results are particularly relevant to the special issue we
propose. The issue aims at exploring the situation of morphology with respect
to its established interfaces such as:


but also its connections with cognitive processes and language acquisition.

Therefore, submitted papers should not be limited to the presentation of
results of competitions. Rather, the themes of this issue include all studies
dealing computationally with any complex matter related to derivation or
compounding. Original models of inflectional morphology are also welcome.
The studies can be concerned with the morphology of the general language,
but also with that of specialty domains languages. Studies may have to do
with French as well as with any other language in the world; the described
systems may be monolingual or multilingual.

Papers on specific applications in NLP and linguistics are also welcome,

machine translation
information retrieval
language typology
evolution of languages and phylogenetics

All approaches are welcome, including rule-based methods, analogy-based
ones, or mixed approaches. They can involve unsupervised, semi-supervised
or supervised machine learning.

Authors intending to submit a paper are encouraged to contact the guest
editors of the issue.

Contributions (25 pages maximum, PDF format) must be sent by e-mail to
