Volume on Multi-word Units in Machine Translation and Translation Technology

Following the successful workshop on Multi-word Units in Machine Translation
and Translation Technology held in conjunction with the MT SUMMIT 2013
conference in Nice (MUMTTT 2013, 3 September 2013), the editors invite
submissions for a volume on the same topics to be published by John Benjamins
during the second half of 2015.

This volume will feature contributions reporting recent advances in the topics
which cut across Linguistics, Computational Linguistics, Translation Studies
and Computational Phraseology. We invite submissions describing substantial
work related to the processing of multi‑word units (MWUs) on topics including,
but not limited to, the ones listed below. Authors of the MUMTTT 2013 workshop
papers are invited to submit extended and revised versions of their papers,
but this call is open to all researchers working on relevant topics and
willing to share their work. Submissions will be reviewed by at least three

Topics (the list below is indicative but not exhaustive):
- Lexical, syntactic, semantic and translational aspects in MWU representation
- Collostructional analysis and MWU
- Automatic extraction of multilingual MWU resources
- Identification and acquisition of multi-word terms and their variants
- Development and use of handcrafted MWU linguistic resources in MT
- MWUs in Computer-assisted Translation
- MWUs in Machine Translation
- Paraphrasing of MWUs applied to the improving of MT
- MWUs and word alignment techniques
- Learning semantic information about MWUs from monolingual, parallel or
comparable corpora
- Multilingualism and MWU processing
- MWU-centred MT evaluation
- Compilation of resources for extraction and translation of multiword units
- Corpora annotated with MWUs for translation studies

We invite expressions of interest by 1 November 2014 by email to both contact
editors below, including the chapter title, list of prospective authors and
affiliation, as well as a 250-word abstract of your contribution.

The full submission is expected to be approximatively 5,000 words in length,
excluding citations and appendices, and should be formatted according to the
publisher’s author guidelines

The deadline for the final contributions is 31 March 2015.

Submissions should describe original work, not published before or under
consideration for publication elsewhere. Each submission will be evaluated by
the scientific committee according to its scientific and technical merit,
usefulness of the approach presented, and relevance to the volume scope.

Expression of interest: 1 November 2014
Full submission: 28 February 2015
Author notification: 15 April 2015
Final version: 15 May 2015
