Grammar development: Multilingual aspects
of the syntax-semantics interface
Research Workshop of the Israel Science Foundation
Beit Daniel, Zichron Ya'akov, Israel, June 23-25, 2015
workshop is intended as a forum for the discussion of issues related to
the development of large-scale precision grammars. It will cover
various aspects of grammar design and development, with a special
emphasis on the universal and language-specific aspects of grammar,
particularly in the domain of the syntax-semantics interface.
Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
• Grammar development and grammar engineering
• Grammar implementation platforms
• Modularity in grammar design
• Grammars of Non-Standard Average European languages
• Grammars of less-resourced languages
• Cross-lingual and multi-lingual grammar development
• The syntax-semantics interface
• Predicate argument structure
• Verb subcategorization
• Semantic selection and syntactic selection
workshop welcomes studies on a variety of natural languages. It is
intended to serve as a meeting where researchers working on different
aspects of grammar development can exchange ideas, report on recent and
on-going work and discuss future directions.
The workshop is planned
to span three days. We plan to devote the mornings to scientific
presentations and (some of) the afternoons to research meetings in
small groups, in order to encourage new collaborations and
The workshop is scheduled to immediately follow the
Israeli Seminar on Computational Linguistics (ISCOL), which will be held on
Monday 22/6/2015 at the Open University. We hope that the juxtaposition
of the two events will promote dialog and exchange of ideas between
researchers of both communities.
