The aim of GL workshops is to bring together diverse contributions in philosophy, linguistics, computer science and lexicography to explore the lexicon from the point of view of generativity. The discussions will be centered, but are not limited to, the emerging view of “Generative Lexicon Theory" (Pustejovsky). Topics include:
Philosophical foundations of a generative approach
Generative lexicon theory and representation of word meaning
Analysis of linguistic phenomena in a generative perspective
Frameworks for lexical semantics
Philosophical differences between frameworks
Critical perspectives and evaluation
In this fourth workshop we would like to keep all the above perspectives, but put more of the focus on building on-line GL resources for NLP tasks, in particular:
Arguments and counter-arguments in favour of a GL resource
Acquiring lexical information: methodology, tools, resources
Maintaining and evaluating GL resources on systematic grounds
Scalability for different NLP tasks
Papers can make reference to any semantic lexicons (Wordnet, Framenet, Meaning-text theory, etc.), but a link to Generative Lexicon theory is desirable (Pustejovsky, 1995). Key topics are:
How to build a Generative Lexicon?
How a Generative Lexicon can be extracted from existing resources or corpora?
How to connect qualia structures with other lexical information?
How to use qualia structures in NLP applications?
The conference will be held over a period of two days. Both posters and presentations are foreseen and will be published in the proceedings. Invited speakers will be announced later.
Authors should submit an anonymous paper of at most 7 single-column
pages (including references) using a 12' body font size together with a
separate page specifying the author's name, affiliation, address, e-mail
address, title and type of paper (normal presentation or poster). The minimum
size is 3 pages for a poster
paper and 5 pages for a normal paper. The papers should be submitted electronically (in postscript, rtf or pdf format) to both: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
All papers must be submitted and presented in English. Accepted papers
will be published in the proceedings of the workshop.
