Meeting Description:

E-MELD Digital Language Documentation Workshop on Morphosyntactic Annotation and
Terminology: Linguistic Ontologies

This is the 5th E-MELD (Electronic Metastructure for Endangered Languages Data)
workshop on digital language documentation,  sponsored by the National Science
Foundation. This year's workshop is entitled ''Morphosyntactic annotation and
terminology:  the use of linguistic ontologies.''  The conference will focus on
linguistic ontologies as aids in linguistic annotation and as tools for the
fine-grained search and retrieval of language documentation.

One goal of the workshop is to invite community participation in the development
 of GOLD, the General Ontology for Linguistic Description developed by the
E-MELD team at U. of Arizona. However we welcome presentations on all aspects
of morphosyntactic annotation and/or the use of ontologies in linguistic
description. For more information about GOLD, see

The E-MELD (Electronic Metastructure for Endangered Languages Data) Project is a
five-year project funded by the National Science Foundation with a dual
objective: to aid in the preservation of endangered languages data and
documentation and to aid in the development of the infrastructure necessary for
effective collaboration among electronic archives. As part of the effort to
promote consensus on best practices in digital language documentation, E-MELD
is hosting its fifth workshop from June 22-24, 2005 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The
 E-MELD workshop is being scheduled for convenient travel for participants who
are planning on going to the ACL meeting in Ann Arbor.

A detailed call for papers is forthcoming.
