Call For Papers

*Call for Papers (Special Issue)*
*Linguistic Issues in Language Technology (LiLT) *
*Grammar Engineering: Precision Grammars*

Precision grammars are encodings of linguistic knowledge in a
representation that is both interpretable by humans and and usable in
parsers and sentence generators, which aim to handle rare constructions
as well as the more common ones.

LiLT solicits papers for a special issue on precision grammars, with a
particular interest in the following topics:

* Mixed or hybrid models of statistical and precision grammars
* Gradient grammaticality in precision grammars
* The use of machine learning and treebanks in creating precision grammars
* Parsing evaluation metrics that focus on evaluating the coverage of
rare phenomena
* Applications that show the importance/advantages of precision grammars;
* Handling of cross linguistic generalizations and typological
information in multi-lingual projects
* Precision grammar projects on less-studied languages

The deadline for submissions is: October 31, 2015
Submissions should be sent to

There is no special format required for submissions but accepted papers
need to be submitted in LATEX.
