Remi van Trijp and Luc Steels organize the workshop “Computational Construction Grammar” at the 8th International Conference on Construction Grammar (ICCG8) that will take place at the University of Osnabrück, Germany.
You can find the details of the workshop in this link.
The next video lecture of the FCG online tutorial has been published. It teaches you how to use a construction set to parse and produce utterances: the real test to knowing whether your constructions actually work!
The fifth video lecture is ready for streaming now! It provides you with all the information you need for writing your own goal tests that influence the way the FCG search process will come up with solutions. You can go to the latest lecture through this link.
The fourth lecture of our FCG tutorial has been posted to the lectures page now. This lecture teaches you how to organize your constructions into a construction inventory and how to deal with construction inventory configurations.
The third lecture of our FCG tutorial is now online. You can find the video and tutorial materials at this page. This third lecture teaches you how to write and process grammatical constructions.
The second lecture of the FCG tutorial is now online! The lecture is split in two videos and explains how constructions are operationalized in FCG, how they can be processed, and how complex lexical constructions can be written. You can find the lecture at this page.
The first lecture in our new video tutorial series is now officially live. You can check the video and its course materials at this page. The first lecture immediately goes into some technical details about the most basic representation and processing techniques of FCG. The reward awaits in lecture two, where you will learn how these techniques can be used for representing and processing constructions.
Great news for everyone who is interested in using Fluid Construction Grammar for building NLP applications or conducting computational linguistics research! Starting today, a series of video lectures will be made available on this website that will guide you from the very basics of FCG to full-blown grammar development. Check out the new tutorial webpage for more information.
You can download the latest FCG source code including a new range of construction templates from Babel2 website now. The demos that accompany the 2011 volume on Design Patterns in Fluid Construction Grammar are still included in the release.
A new paper just got published that explains how long-distance dependencies can be handled in FCG:
