First Call for papers - DeriMo 2023

The Fourth International Workshop on Resources and Tools for Derivational Morphology - DeriMo 2023
Dubrovnik, Croatia
5-6 October 2023

The Fourth International Workshop on Resources and Tools for Derivational Morphology will be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on October 05 and 06, 2023, at the Centre for Advanced Academic Studies (CAAS), Dubrovnik, Croatia. The 2023 edition of the workshop will continue the discussion on language resources and tools for derivational morphology (and, more generally, on word formation) started in DeriMo 2017 (Milan, Italy) and continued in DeriMo 2019 (Prague, Czech Republic) and DeriMo 2021 (Nancy, France).

DeriMo 2023 will provide an international platform for the presentation of new developments in existing word-formation resources and for the introduction of recently created ones. A debate is expected on all aspects of the creation of these resources, from technical solutions to linguistic decisions on which word-formation processes and how they are modeled in the resource. DeriMo 2023 wants to cover modern as well as ancient languages and welcomes approaches with a potentially multi-lingual focus. The availability of appropriate tools is considered essential not only for resource development but also for the potential use of word-formation data in both Natural Language Processing and linguistic descriptions. Another goal of DeriMo 2023 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 a
nd 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.

Conference topics

DeriMo 2023 aims to cover a wide range of topics. Submissions are invited for presentations featuring high-quality, previously unpublished research, both completed and ongoing, with an emphasis on novel approaches, methods, ideas, and perspectives, whether descriptive, theoretical, formal or computational. In particular, the topics to be addressed in the workshop include (but are not limited to) the following:

- language resources for word-formation either of individual languages, or with a multi-lingual focus,
- representation of word-formation processes in the resources (models based on base-derivative pairs, paradigmatic models, or other representations),
- enhancement of word-formation resources with other features (e.g. semantic categories in affixation, classification of compounds),
- linking word-formation resources with other types of annotation (e.g. syntactic, semantic),
- application of (semi-)automatic methods in modelling word formation,
- tools for creating, searching etc. of word-formation resources,
- data-based linguistic research in any aspect of word-formation (of individual languages, with contrastive or comparative focus, diachronic perspectives etc.),
- theoretical accounts of word-formation issues.

Invited Speaker
Stela Manova (University of Vienna, Austria)
