Call For Papers

Volume on Multi-word Units in Machine Translation and Translation Technology


Background: Following the successful workshop on Multi-word Units in Machine Translation and Translation Technology held in conjunction with the MT SUMMIT 2013 conference in Nice (MUMTTT 2013, 3 September 2013), the editors invite submissions for a volume on the same topics to be published by John Benjamins during the second half of 2015.
This volume will feature contributions reporting recent advances in the topics which cut across Linguistics, Computational Linguistics, Translation Studies and Computational Phraseology. We invite submissions describing substantial work related to the processing of multi word units (MWUs) on topics including, but not limited to, the ones listed below. Authors of the MUMTTT 2013 workshop papers are invited to submit extended and revised versions of their papers, but this call is open to all researchers working on relevant topics and willing to share their work. Submissions will be reviewed by at least three reviewers.

Topics (the list below is indicative but not exhaustive):
Lexical, syntactic, semantic and translational aspects in MWU representation
Collostructional analysis and MWU
Automatic extraction of multilingual MWU resources
Identification and acquisition of multi-word terms and their variants
Development and use of handcrafted MWU linguistic resources in MT
MWUs in Computer-assisted Translation
MWUs in Machine Translation
Paraphrasing of MWUs applied to the improving of MT
MWUs and word alignment techniques
Learning semantic information about MWUs from monolingual, parallel or comparable corpora
Multilingualism and MWU processing
MWU-centred MT evaluation
Compilation of resources for extraction and translation of multiword units
Corpora annotated with MWUs for translation studies

Submission: We invite expressions of interest by 1 November 2014 by email to both contact editors below, including the chapter title, list of prospective authors and affiliation, as well as a 250-word abstract of your contribution.
The full submission is expected to be approximatively 5,000 words in length, excluding citations and appendices, and should be formatted according to the publisher’s author guidelines ( The deadline for the final contributions is 31 March 2015.
Submissions should describe original work, not published before or under consideration for publication elsewhere. Each submission will be evaluated by the scientific committee according to its scientific and technical merit, usefulness of the approach presented, and relevance to the volume scope.

Expression of interest: 1 November 2014
Full submission: 28 February 2015
Author notification: 15 April 2015
Final version: 15 May 2015
