Workshop on Lexical and Grammatical Resources for Language Processing
(LG-LP 2014)
Dublin, Ireland, 24 August 2014 [] 
This workshop is held in conjunction with COLING 2014 
[], co-sponsored by 
ASIALEX and endorsed by SIGLEX 

The workshop aims to bring together members of the language-resource
(LR) landscape, focusing on complex linguistic knowledge that requires
linguistic expertise, e.g. on dictionaries, ontologies and
grammars. Such manually-built resources are key to the development of
natural language processing (NLP) tools and applications. The workshop
intends to strengthen the cohesion of the scientific "production chain"
spanning from the construction of LRs by linguists to their exploitation
in hybrid or symbolic NLP. It is necessary to increase mutual awareness
between researchers along this production chain, regarding their
activities, skills and needs, in view of improving the building
processes of the resources, their validation and their exploitation.

Many linguists are comfortable with descriptive tasks such as checking
lexical entries for a given feature, even if each entry requires
analysing or pondering. On the other hand, computer scientists are
familiar with formalization and, usually, with notions such as
falsifiability or reproducibility, which are fundamental to
sciences. Combining all these skills is likely to stimulate
innovation. The workshop offers an opportunity of interaction which is
required to overcome the compartmentalization between humanities and
sciences, and to intensify co-operation between the two ends of the
