Computer-assisted approaches in historical and typological language

Workshop proposal for the 52nd Annual meeting of the SLE, Leipzig,
August 21–24 2019.

The workshop invites papers that deal with computer-assisted (as opposed
to pure computational or pure qualitative) approaches to historical and
typological language comparison. Computer-assisted approaches are hereby
understood as procedures involving different stages of qualitative and
quantitative data analysis, ranging from the initial preparation of
lexical or structural data, via automatic or manual annotation, up to
qualitative or quantitative analysis, that yield a specific result, be
it a linguistic reconstruction system linking proto-forms to aligned
reflexes, a phylogeny that lists inferred word histories, or tools for
exploratory data analysis. By focusing on computer-assisted approaches,
we hope to foster a more intensive collaboration between classical and
computational linguists. In addition to detailed  descriptions of
concrete tasks in historical and typological language comparison, we
also encourage submissions dealing with data standards enhancing data
sharing and reuse, as well as the presentation of purely qualitative
approaches for which no computational solutions exist so far.

We ask you to send 300-word abstracts in editable non-anonymous form
(preferably LibreOffice, Word, or text format) for the inclusion in the
workshop proposal to mattis.list at shh.mpg.de, by November 15, 2018.
Please mark that you are sending an abstract by adding [SLE-CALC] in the
header of your email.
