DeriMo 2019: First Call for Papers
The Second International Workshop on Resources and Tools for Derivational Morphology (DeriMo 2019) will be held in Prague, Czech Republic, on September 19 and 20, 2019, at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University. The Workshop is co-chaired by Magda Ševčíková and Zdeněk Žabokrtský from ÚFAL, Charles University, and by LiLa’s very own Eleonora Litta and Marco Passarotti.
The Prague edition of the workshop will continue and push forward the discussion on language resources and tools for derivational morphology (and, more generally, on word formation) as started at the first DeriMo workshop (DeriMo 2017), which took place in Milan, Italy, in October 2017.
DeriMo 2019 will provide an international platform for presentation of new developments in existing word-formation resources and for introduction of recently created ones. A debate is expected on all aspects of creation of these resources, from technical solutions to linguistic decisions on which word-formation processes and how they are modelled in the resource. DeriMo 2019 wants to cover modern as well as ancient languages and welcomes approaches with a potentially multi-lingual focus. Availability of appropriate tools is considered essential not only for the resource development but also for potential use of word-formation data in both Natural Language Processing and linguistic descriptions. Another goal of DeriMo 2019 is to bring the state-of-the-art approaches to modelling word-formation closer to current linguistic accounts of word formation. Presentations of any type of linguistic research into word formation are expected to contribute to a discussion on usage and usability of available resources and tools. Linguistic insights into the phenomena that are modelled in the word-formation resources may indicate directions of future research, whether with language-specific, cross-lingual, multi-lingual, or typological perspectives.
