 Geographical or spatial information is now included in most of 
 exchanged data. Sometimes, it is directly provided through metadata, but 
 it is very often hidden and it becomes crucial to automatically discover 
 it.

 Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Data Mining communities have thus 
 merged their efforts in order to extract geospatial information from 
 textual documents, web pages, field data, and so forth. In this way, 
 recent researches take into account the content of documents (e.g. 
 terms) to identify geospatial data or to predict its geographic 
 location.

 Nevertheless, spatial information has some specificities that make 
 discovering spatial information and/or spatial correlations from large 
 amount of data still challenging. In this context, some proposals have 
 been focused on the formalization of geospatial concepts and 
 relationships, on the extraction of geospatial relations (e.g. rivers / 
 body of water, town / suburb) in free texts to offer to the database

Final Call for Contributions: edited volume of Springer book series "The People's Web Meets NLP: Collaboratively Constructed Language Resources"

[Our apologies if you have received multiple copies of this announcement.]

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS

Edited Volume "The People's Web Meets NLP: Collaboratively Constructed Language Resources"

Springer book series: "Theory and Applications of Natural Language Processing", E. Hovy, M. Johnson and
G. Hirst (eds.)

http://www.ukp.tu-darmstadt.de/scientific-community/edited-book-the-peoples-web-meets-nlp


===Description===

The application of collective intelligence in the domain of language yielded collaboratively
constructed language resources (CCLR) that can be used in a variety of ways.

The aim of this book is to capture the state-of-the-art in the emerging area of research on
"Collaboratively constructed language resources." Thus, a point of reference on the topics of
construction, mining, using and interconnecting collaboratively constructed language resources for
natural language processing, knowledge discovery and other intelligent applications will be created.

Given the appropriateness of the topics, preliminary versions of contributions may be submitted in
parallel to the 3rd workshop of "The People's Web meets NLP: Collaboratively Constructed Semantic
Resources and their Applications to NLP."

The following might be of interest to those who use corpora for language teaching and learning, and perhaps
for those interested in lexicography. For those interested in using corpora to teach English for
Academic Purposes (EAP), you might take a look at the note at the end.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We have just released a new interface for the 425 million word Corpus of Contemporary American English (COCA):

http://www.wordandphrase.info

Even more so than the standard COCA interface (which will continue to be available), the new website is
designed to provide information on many different aspects of a word and its usage -- all on one screen.
Users can browse through the frequency listing (lemmas 1-60,000 in the corpus) or look for specific
words, and then for any matching words they can see:

-- the definition(s) of the word (based on WordNet)
-- the overall frequency in the 425 million word corpus, and its rank (1-60,000)
-- the frequency in each of the five main genres -- spoken, fiction, magazines, newspapers, and academic
-- 20-30 collocates, which of course provide useful insight into meaning and usage
-- 200 concordance lines (re-sortable), which provide insight into the patterns in which the word occurs
-- synonyms (grouped by meaning and sorted by frequency); can click to see the entries for related words
-- WordNet entries, showing related words with a more specific or a more general meaning

As noted, all of this information is displayed together on one screen, with extensive links from one word to
another. For example, you can click on any of the 20-30 collocates or any word in the concordance lines, to
generate a new concordance display for a specific node/collocate pair. Or you can click on any of the
synonyms or the WordNet entries to generate a new display, and thus follow a "chain" of related words.

If you are interested in English words and their frequency, genre distribution, meaning, the
relationship to related words, and the patterns in which a word occurs, we believe that this new resource
will be quite useful for you in your teaching, learning, and research. And as always, it is available for
free -- no annual subscription fees for individuals or institutions.

As a final note, we might mention that in the next month or two we'll be releasing a related resource -- a
special version of www.wordandphrase.info that is oriented to English for Academic Purposes (EAP).
Same functionality as above, but limited to just the 85 million words of academic texts in COCA. Based on
words with a much higher frequency in the 85 million words of academic texts in COCA than in other genres,
with frequency by academic sub-genre (medical, legal, education, social sciences, humanities, etc),
and all collocates and concordance lines limited to just the academic genre.

Re: Colour usage by British, American and Russian writers

Dear colleague,

I take it you know of "Colouring Meaning: collocation and connotation in figurative meaning" (Gill Philip, Benjamins 2011. This gives an excellent corpus linguistic perspective.

Best regards

                               Istanbul, Turkey 
                                 May 27, 2012 


To answer the growing need and lower the costs of resource creation and enhancement, 
there is a movement within the community toward collaborative resource development, 
including collaborative corpus annotation and collective creation/enhancement of 
lexical resources and knowledge bases. Collaborative development encompasses both
engaging the community in annotation and development of common resources, as
well as crowd-sourcing and similar solutions.

This workshop seeks contributions in all dimensions of collaborative resource
development and delivery, with a specific focus on case studies and lessons
learned. We invite submissions that address but are not limited to the following
topics: 
  - Web services and platforms for collaborative resource development and
    distribution; 
  - Crowd sourcing for resource development, including studies of efficacy; 
  - Strategies and issues for open resource distribution; 
  - Evaluation of collaboratively developed resources; 
  - Position papers outlining issues and proposing solutions for community-based 
    collaborative resource development and/or delivery.

---------------
Special Session
---------------

The workshop will include a special session devoted to means and considerations
for community-based linguistic annotation, with a special emphasis on the
Manually Annotated Sub-Corpus (MASC) (http://www.anc.org/MASC). We invite
submissions to this session on the following topics: 

  - position papers concerning any aspect of collaborative resource development, 
    including means to get the community fully invested in such efforts; 
  - case studies describing collaborative development efforts, including assessment 
    of what works and what doesn't; 
  - results obtained using collaboratively developed resources; 
  - the role of standards and best practices in collaboratively developed resources 
    and contributed annotations.

Special consideration will be given to contributions that have used MASC data in
a way that highlights the benefits of community-based annotation.

----------------------
Submission Information
----------------------

Submissions may be long papers or short papers, following the formatting
guidelines for submissions to the main conference given at
http://www.lrec-conf.org/lrec2012/. All submissions should be made using the

Submitters will be asked to provide relevant information about resources used 
for or resulting from the work described in their papers to the LRE Map

Thanks for the new resource! Is there any particular reason why the
interface doesn't support the Opera Web Browser? If I choose to mask
my browser (Opera 11.60) as Firefox the site seems to be working
perfectly. Probably, there is no reason to single out Opera.

Corpora of Modern Khalkha Mongolian language: do they exist?

How can I ask a question whether there are any (available or simply existing) corpora of Modern Khalkha Mongolian language?
What kind of information do you recommend me to use?

You might contact Kenneth Scannel (http://borel.slu.edu/index.html). 
According to his listing at http://borel.slu.edu/crubadan/stadas.html, 
he's collected 5,785,080 words of Mongolian off the web.  For copyright 
reasons, I don't think he provides the texts themselves, but he might 
provide links to the web pages, and you might be in a better position 
than he would be to negotiate research rights with some of the publishers.
