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


Background: 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 the recent advances of the volume topics which cut across Linguistics, Computational Linguistics, Translation Studies and Computational Phraseology s. 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. Whereas authors of the workshop papers are invited to submit an extended and revised version of their MUMTTT 2013 papers, this call is open to all researchers working on the topics of the volume and willing to share their work. Submissions will be reviewed by at least 3 reviewers.

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 improving 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 Corpora annotated with MWUs for translation studies Submission: 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 (https://benjamins.com/jbp/additional/jb-guidelines-manuscript-submission-apa.pdf). 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.

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