Featured Linguist!

Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Meeting Description: 7th Linguistic Annotation Workshop & Interoperability with Discourse (LAW VII & ID)
Sponsored by the ACL Special Interest Group on Annotation (SIGANN)

Held in Conjunction with the 51st Annual Association for Computational Linguistics Conference (ACL’13)

Workshop Overview:

Linguistic annotation of natural language corpora is the backbone of supervised methods for statistical natural language processing. It also provides valuable data for evaluation of both rule-based and supervised systems and can help formalize and study linguistic phenomena.

The LAW provides a forum for presentation and discussion of innovative research on all aspects of linguistic annotation, including creation/evaluation of annotation schemes, methods for automatic and manual annotation, use and evaluation of annotation software and frameworks, representation of linguistic data and annotations, etc. This year, a significant part of the workshop will focus on the special theme of Interoperability with Discourse.
