The 11th International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories - CFP

1 Sep 2012

TLT serves as a venue for new and ongoing research on the topic of linguistics and tree banks. TLT 11 will take place in Lisbon, Portugal on November 30 - December 1, 2012, and is hosted by CLUL at the university of Lisbon.

Treebanks are language resources that provide annotations at various levels of linguistic structure beyond the word level. They typically provide syntactic constituent or dependency structures for sentences, and often extend to functional and predicate-argument structure. Treebanks have become crucially important for the development of data-driven approaches to natural language processing, human language technologies, grammar extraction and linguistic research in general. A growing number of projects explore annotation beyond syntactic structure (including, for instance, semantic, pragmatic and rhetorical annotation) and beyond a single language (for instance, parallel treebanks).

Experiences in building treebanks have shown that there is a relation between formal linguistic theory and the practice of annotation. Since the practices of building treebanks have proved that aiming at more detailed descriptions of the data becomes more and more theory-dependent, the connections between treebank development and linguistic theories need to be tightly connected in order to ensure the necessary information flow between them. This series of workshops aims to provide a forum for researchers and advanced students working in these areas.
