Workshop overview and objectives

This workshop will focus on the development of language technology resources and tools for indigenous, endangered and lesser-resourced languages on the Eurasian continent.

In a media-centric world where language technology allows people to break cultural and language barriers, it is important that speakers of endangered and indigenous languages can be empowered to use this technology to continue to share their knowledge and culture with the world. With the hope of bridging this gap, the goal of this workshop is to increase visibility and promote research for lesser-resourced and underrepresented languages in Europe and Asia. Through collaboration between NLP researchers, language experts and linguists working for the benefit of endangered languages in these communities, we aim to create language technology resources that will help to preserve and revive these languages for future generations. Furthermore, the workshop aims to promote the emergence of new methods that benefit linguists, for instance for automation of analysis and validation processes, field linguists, the facilitation of data collection and analysis processes, and computational linguists by developing new techniques necessary for linguistic analysis, development of supervised or weakly supervised methods for the analysis of poorly written or undocumented languages.

The main objective of the workshop is to create basic resources and develop tools for Eurasiatic languages, including but not limited to the following topics:

identifying languages and variants spoken in these regions

creation of language resources and applications, e.g. sentiment analysis, named entity recognition, and syntactic parsing

standardization for endangered languages

automatic identification and classification of lexical variation and language varieties

adaptation of fundamental NLP tools for these languages, e.g., morphological analysis, taggers and parsers

reusability of language resources in NLP applications, e.g. machine translation, and POS tagging

machine translation between closely related languages

evaluation of language resources and tools when applied to lesser-resourced languages in the same language families

corpora, resources, and tools for closely related languages

linguistic and textual similarities among languages in Eurasia

digitalization of endangered languages

challenges in the creation of language resources and tools from linguistic perspectives (which includes any perspective formal theory)
