Journal of Language Modelling


High-level Methodologies for Grammar Engineering

Special Issue Description

Many grammatical frameworks have been proposed over the last decades
to describe the syntax (and semantics) of natural language. Among the
most widely used, one may cite (in chronological order) Tree-Adjoining
Grammar (TAG) [Joshi et al., 1975], Lexical-Functional Grammar (LFG)
[Bresnan and Kaplan, 1982], Combinatory Categorial Grammar (CCG)
[Steedman, 1987], or Head- driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG)
[Pollard and Sag, 1994]. These frameworks present theoretical and
practical interests. From a theoretical point of view, they provide a
formal device for the linguist to experiment with her/his theories.
)From a practical point of view, they make it possible to automatically
process natural language in applications such as dialog systems,
machine translation, etc. They differ in their expressivity and
complexity. Some prove more suitable for the description of a given
language than others. Still, for many of these frameworks, large
resources (e.g., grammars) have been designed, at first by hand, and
later via dedicated tools (e.g., integrated grammar environments such
as XLE for LFG [King et al., 2000]). In this Special Issue, we are
concerned with this complex task of grammar engineering, keeping in
mind the two above-mentioned theoretical and practical interests.

Topics of Interest

This special issue welcomes contributions from the following topics
(without being limited to these):

1. New or updated work on the traditional topics of GEAF workshops

The traditional topics in the series of "Grammar Engineering Accross
Frameworks" workshops, "Formal Grammar" conferences and / or the
"High-level Methodologies for Grammar Engineering" ESSLLI 2013
workshop are appropriate. The submitted paper must clearly deal with
language modelling.

An extended version of a workshop/conference paper can be submitted,
provided that the contribution has been substantially updated. The
forums for any preliminary versions of the paper must be indicated.

2. Study of new fundamental and / or applied results in relation with
grammar development, maintenance and enhancement

- dedicated description languages for grammar engineering
- semi-automatic acquisition of grammars
- development of grammars for under-resourced languages
- cross-framework grammar engineering
- cross-language grammar engineering
- seamless construction of grammars from dynamically changing
linguistic descriptions
- designs of weighted grammars
- efficient and dynamic construction of structures from updated rules
or logical formulas

3. Study of new methods for grammar engineering and their applications

- debugging environments for grammar design
- systems based on large-scale grammars

4. In addition, the topics of interest include reports on

- new kinds of implementations of grammar compilers, libraries and
on-demand operations
- benchmarks suitable for evaluation of grammars
- methods that construct, minimize or decompose grammars

Important Dates

- Deadline for submissions: 2 February 2014
- First decision: 12 May 2014
- Submission of revised version: 17 July 2014
- Final decision: 22 September 2014
- Submission of camera-ready versions: 19 October 2014
