Meeting Description:

6th International Conference on Meaning-Text Theory

The Meaning-Text Theory is a holistic linguistic theory characterized in particular by the central position of the lexicon, the primacy of semantics, the importance of the communicative structure (= information structure), and the reliance on dependencies at all levels. MTT has been extensively developed over the last four decades with respect to its coverage of linguistic phenomena and application in a variety of research fields - in particular natural language processing. After MTT '03 in Paris, MTT '05 in Moscow, MTT '07 in Klagenfurt, MTT '09 in Montreal, MTT '11 in Barcelona, this conference is the sixth in a series that aims at bringing together researchers working on MTT and related frameworks and their implementation in the natural language processing applications.

The main unifying ideas for MTT '13 are interaction and semantic motivation: interaction of different linguistic units, interaction of different levels of language, and semantic motivation of syntax, semantic motivation of collocations.

The conference will be organized in conjunction with the International Conference on Dependency Linguistics (http://ufal.mff.cuni.cz/project/depling13) to take place immediately before MTT '13 (August 27-30). Participation in both conferences is warmly welcome.

Invited Speaker:

Igor Mel'čuk

Call for Papers:

Submissions in the following areas are welcome:

- Morphology, with a particular focus on semantics of morphological categories, including non-standard meanings and usages, and interaction of morphological and lexical semantics
- Syntax, with a particular focus on semantic motivation and classes in government patterns, description of government patterns in dictionaries, micro-syntax as a sphere of modal meanings, syntactic phrasemes
- Semantics and Lexicography, with a particular focus on lexicographic definitions, semantic scopes, semantic interaction of linguistic units in texts, lexicalization of prosody, lexicalization of grammar (e.g. synonymy of singular and plural in certain lexemes)
- Collocations and Lexical Functions, with a particular focus on semantically motivated collocations
- Computational Applications
- Typology

Submissions must be in English. They may not exceed 10 pages in length (including all figures, data, notes, and bibliography) using a 12 point font, printed in one column, and should indicate to which track they are submitted. Further details on the submission format will be published later.
