EACL 2006 Workshop on

Multi-word-expressions in a multilingual context

April 3rd 2006, Trento, Italy

The EACL 2006 Workshop on "Multi-word-expressions in a multilingual
context" will be hosted in conjunction with the 11th Conference of the
European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics that
will take place April 3-7, 2006, in Trento, Italy.

Online submission is now open at:


For many years, interest in the NLP community of the problems that
multiword-expressions (MWE) posed was focussed mainly on
English. Recently, for example at the ACL2004 workshop on multiword
expressions, attention has begun to expand to other languages such as
Japanese, Russian, Basque and Turkish. This necessitates a
re-evaluation of earlier rule-based, statistical and hybrid techniques
for MWE identification and classification. In English, MWE types such
as phrasal verbs, noun phrases, proper names, and true
non-compositional idioms, are considered. However, in other languages
some MWE types are represented as compound words, e.g. phrasal verbs
in English are generally expressed as verb-prefix in Russian.  At the
same time, research on MWEs for languages other than English is
confronted with new problems, such as the number of word forms per
lemma or free word order.

Our focus in this workshop will be to incorporate the requirements
from different areas such as translation, language engineering and
those studying computational techniques for the processing of MWE of
language learners and how all these requirements differ across

For further details and topics of interest, please refer to the
website of the workshop.
