TheoreticAl and Computational MOrphology: New Trends and Synergies

Workshop to be held in conjunction with the
International Congress of Linguists, July 2013, Geneva (CH)


Nowadays, theoretical morphology witnesses a revival due to the
emergence of new formalization frameworks, both for inflectional and
lexical morphology: canonical morphology, approaches based on analogy,
rule-based approaches, to name just a few. All these approaches can
potentially shed new light on computational processing of morphology,
either for parsing or generation. In parallel, new computational
techniques (such as (un-)supervised morphological acquisition) and
formal frameworks bring a fresh look on morphological phenomena. Both
domains tackle more or less implicitly the organization of the lexicon
in general. The TACMO workshop aims at gathering these two facets of
morphology - computational and theoretical formalization - in order to
foster interactions and to highlight how both approaches benefit from
each other.

We mainly expect (but not exclusively) communication proposals on the
following topics:

- Inflectional, derivational and compositional morphology.
- Problems raised by non affixal processes (templatic morphology,
  reduction and truncation, reduplication, blending and conversion)
- Semantics-morphology interface and its role in the organization of the
- Syntax-morphology interface and its role in NLP systems.
- Conception of lexical resources enriched with morphological

Talk proposals should especially focus on the innovative aspects of the
formalization and/or its benefits for automation. For computational
approaches, the focus should be put on the new perspective that the
implementation can bring on morphological descriptions.

Authors should submit an anonymous extended abstract (3-4 pages) in
English, containing the title of the talk, keywords and
references. Abstract should be written in usual font (typically Times
12pt) and submitted in pdf format through EasyChair at the following
address :

All abstracts will be blind reviewed by two members of the Scientific
A book of abstract will be distributed at the workshop.
