Meeting Description:

DeriMo2017 concludes the Word Formation Latin (WFL) project, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 658332-WFL. The project is based at the Centro Interdisciplinare di Ricerche per la Computerizzazione dei Segni dell’Espressione (CIRCSE:, at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Milan, Italy.

The workshop wants to be both an opportunity for the presentation of WFL to the wider community, and a place where confrontation with other scholars engaged in the treatment of derivational morphology for different languages (either modern or ancient) can arise, and potentials for the cross-linguistic sharing of techniques and methods can be discussed.

Invited Speaker: Pius ten Hacken (University of Innsbruck, Austria)

The Workshop on Resources and Tools for Derivational Morphology aims at covering a wide range of topics.

In particular, the topics to be addressed in the workshop include (but are not limited to) the following:

- Resources for derivational morphology
- Connecting the derivational morphology level of annotation in language resources with other levels of linguistic analysis (e.g. semantic, syntactic…)
- (NLP) tools for the semi-automatic creation of resources for derivational morphology
- (NLP) tools including components of derivational morphology
- Empirically based comparative and multilingual studies on derivational morphology
- Empirically based diachronic studies on derivational morphology
- Query tools for derivational morphology resources
- Theoretical issues in derivational morphology.
