WACL-2 -- Second Workshop on Arabic Corpus Linguistics
Date: 22 July 2013 Time: 9.00 am- 5.00 p.m.
Venue: Lancaster University
The Second Workshop on Arabic Corpus Linguistics isto be held in conjunction with the Corpus Linguistics 2013 conference.
The aim of this series of workshops is to create a venue for exploring progress in the field of research into the Arabic language using corpora, from across the many areas of corpus linguistics and computational linguistics where the analysis of Arabic structure and usage is an active issue.
The scope of the workshop encompasses both (a) the design, construction and annotation of Arabic corpora, and (b) the use of corpora in research on the Arabic language - in any relevant area, including (but not limited to!) lexis and lexicography, syntax, collocation, NLP systems and analysis tools, contrastive and historical studies, stylistics, and discourse analysis. All varieties of Arabic - including the different Colloquial Arabics as well as Classical/Qur'anic and Modern Standard forms of the language - are within the workshop's purview.
Abstracts for presentations are invited on any of these areas, or on any other topic related to the study of Arabic-language corpora. Presentations either describing finished research or reporting work in progress are welcome. Submissions from postgraduate students are especially welcome.
