Interdisciplinary Workshop on the Identification and Representation of Verb
Features and Verb Classes

February 28 - March 1, 2005

Saarland University, Saarbrücken, Germany


Workshop Description

Verbs and their features have always received wide attention in various
disciplines concerned with linguistic research, since their contribution is
essential to the structure and the interpretation of language. In recent
years, the availability of new lexical resources and increasingly large
corpora, the application of empirical methods and statistical algorithms
and the development of technical devices such as eye-trackers and magnetic
resonance imaging has led to advances in several linguistic areas. This
interdisciplinary workshop brings together researchers from linguistic
domains such as lexicography, computational linguistics, psycholinguistics,
and neuroscience, in order to discuss their perspectives on verb senses,
verb features and verb classes.

The aim of this workshop is to contribute to an exchange of new ideas and
methods. The focus of the workshop is on the identification and
representation of verb features at the syntax-semantic interface and verb
classes as generalisations and organisational means for verbs. The workshop
addresses questions such as (but not restricted to):
- how human beings describe and classify verbs,
- which verb features are universal vs. language-specific, 
- which verb features are relevant to distinguish verb senses, 
- how we can obtain verb features and verb classes automatically,
- which kinds of verb features and verb classes are useful for NLP
- which kinds of features and classes are useful for capturing human
processing generalisations,
- how verbs are represented in the brain.
