Bulletin of Scientific Terminology and Neologisms, special issue on MWEs in Greek and other languages: from theory to implementation

The term Multi Word Expression (MWE) covers a large set of constructions. MWEs are a challenge for the sciences of Language: there is important ongoing work on the theoretical study of MWEs, the development of resources and, of course, processing issues.

Research on Greek MWEs covers a wide range of topics. The time is ripe for a concise reference publication that offers an overview of research on MWEs and provides a forum to high quality ongoing work. The Workshop Modern Greek MWEs 2015 that was held in conjunction with the ICGL12, Sept 23-24, 2015 Berlin served this aim successfully. Kindly supported by the Academy of Athens, the volume advertised here is the second step to this direction.

We invite submissions that

- Offer an overview of work on MWEs in general and Modern Greek MWEs in particular
- Present ongoing work on Modern Greek MWEs in all possible areas including, but not limited to, the topics below:

- Cross-linguistic study of MWEs
- Lexical, syntactic or semantic aspects of MWEs
- MWE resource development, standardization and availability
- Representation of MWEs in resources addressed to humans and to machines
- Integration of MWEs into NLP applications
- Models of first/second language acquisition of MWEs

We invite interested authors to submit an extended abstract by 1 April 2016, in English, in PDF format, 5 pages long at maximum including the title, bibliography, any pictures/tables. Font size should be 11pt. Papers should be anonymous. The authors' names, affiliations, email addresses should be sent separately on the body of the submission email.
