Tutorial on Computational Construction Grammar for Collaborative Open-Source Grammar Development

Remi van Trijp and Katrien Beuls will give a tutorial on computational construction grammar at the LREC 2014 conference¬†on 31 May 2014. The motivation of the tutorial is to create a community of experts that collaborate on open source grammars in different languages. Such an endeavor may have interesting practical purposes — especially in domains that require rich semantics — but is also interesting from a scientific point of view, namely how to operationalize cognitive-functional linguistics.

As follow-up of the tutorial, online training materials and video lectures will be made available. If you are interested in receiving an update on when those lectures are accessible, please mail us at info@fcg-net.org.
