Volume on Multi-word Units in MachineTranslation and Translation Technology





Background: Following the successful workshop onMulti-word Units in Machine Translation and Translation Technology held inconjunction with the MT SUMMIT 2013 conference in Nice (MUMTTT 2013, 3 September 2013), the editorsinvite submissions for a volume on the same topics to be published by JohnBenjamins during the second half of 2015.

This volume will feature contributions reporting recent advances in thetopics which cut across Linguistics, Computational Linguistics, TranslationStudies and Computational Phraseology. We invite submissions describing substantialwork related to the processing of multi‑word units (MWUs) on topics including,but not limited to, the ones listed below. Authors of the MUMTTT 2013 workshoppapers are invited to submit extended and revised versions of their papers, butthis call is open to all researchers working on relevant topics and willing toshare their work.  Submissions will bereviewed by at least three 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 the improving of MT

MWUs and word alignment techniques

Learning semantic information about MWUs from monolingual, parallel orcomparable corpora

Multilingualism and MWU processing

MWU-centred MT evaluation

Compilation of resources for extraction and translation of multiwordunits

Corpora annotated with MWUs for translation studies


Submission: We invite full submissions by 28 February 2015 by email to both contacteditors below, including the chapter title, list of authors, affiliation and a250-word abstract. The full submission is expected to be approximatively 5,000words in length, excluding citations and appendices, and should be formattedaccording to the publisher’s author guidelines (https://benjamins.com/jbp/additional/jb-guidelines-manuscript-submission-apa.pdf). Submissions should describe original work, not published before orunder consideration for publication elsewhere. Each submission will beevaluated by the scientific committee according to its scientific and technicalmerit, usefulness of the approach presented, and relevance to the volume scope.



Expression of interest: 1 November 2014

Full submission: 28 February 2015(possible also without having sent the expression of interest before)

Author notification: 15 April2015

Final version: 15 May 2015
