Meeting Description:

Workshop: 'Beyond semantics: Corpus-based investigations of pragmatic 
and discourse phenomena'

Organizers: Stefanie Dipper (Bochum) and Heike Zinsmeister (Konstanz)
Workshop organized as part of the Annual Conference of the German
Linguistic Society (DGfS) to be held in Goettingen, Germany, February 23-
25, 2011 

Final Call For Papers

In recent years, focus of corpus-based research has moved from morpho-
syntactic phenomena to semantics (e.g. word sense disambiguation, frame
semantics,predicate-argument structure, temporal structure) and ''beyond'',
i.e., to pragmatic and discourse-related phenomena (e.g. anaphora,
information structure). In the latter field, it is often especially hard to transfer
results from theoretical linguistics that are based on toy examples to
naturally-occurring texts. Even provided explicit annotation guidelines, it is 
often difficult to annotate texts reliably.

We would like to bring together theoretical linguists who use texts and
corpora for pragmatic or discourse-related research questions, and corpus
linguists as well as computational linguists who create and annotate 
relevant corpus resources, or exploit them. The goal of the workshop is to 
enhance exchange between researchers of both fields, and thus to gain 
insight in the -- possibly common -- properties and peculiarities of the 
''beyond'' phenomena.

We invite contributions related (but not limited) to one of the following
- anaphora
- discourse structure
- information structure
- implicatures and presuppositions
- event structure

Questions that we would like to address include:
- Which results from theoretical linguistics (e.g. frameworks, generalizations)
have been tried to apply to (running) texts? What were the outcomes? Did
these outcomes affect the theory?
- In annotating texts, which methods are applied? For instance, are there
linguistic tests that guide the annotators? Which tools are used?
- Which generalizations can be derived from existing resources? Which
applications make use of existing resources?
