[Apologies for cross-posting]

We invite outlines of contributions for an edited volume as follows:


title: “Multiword expressions in lexical resources. Linguistic,

Lexicographic and Computational perspectives”


publication venue: series “Phraseology and Multiword Expressions” at

Language Science Press


editors: Voula Giouli, Verginica Barbu Mititelu

The proposed book is aimed at giving an account of the state-of-the-art regarding multiword expressions (MWE) representation in lexical resources in view of their robust identification and computational processing. We target both large size general lexical resources and smaller MWE-centred ones, with special focus on the representation decisions / mechanisms that facilitate their usage in NLP tasks. Possible topics to be covered include, though they are not limited to:


MWEs in linguistic research and lexicons development; the interface

between grammar and lexicon;


MWE representation in computational lexicons (MWEs in wordnets,

FrameNet, other computational lexicons, representation via word embeddings,



MWE bi-lingual and multilingual lexical resources


MWE lexicons for under-resourced languages and language varieties;


Standards and formalisms for the representation of MWEs: available

possibilities of representing MWE with Linked Data vocabularies;



Acquisition of MWE lexicons and MWE lexical resources - also for

less-resourced languages or non-standard language (tweets, forums,

user-generated content);


Synergies between Lexicography and NLP in view of MWE identification and



MWE representation in corpora - linking with lexical resources /aligning

resources containing MWEs - monolingual vs. cross-lingual perspective;


MWE lexicons in NLP tasks (identification, parsing, machine translation,

etc.) - limitations and possibilities;


Automatic discovery of newly coined MWEs or new variants of existing


Submission of outlines:

The outline should clearly express the topic and the main contribution(s) of the envisaged chapter, as well as provide an overview of the chapter's structure. The outline should be 1-2 pages long (A4, Times New Roman, 12 points, single spacing) (references excluded).

The outline will be sent by email to the volume editors at: voula at athenarc.gr and vergi at racai.ro.

Tentative timeline:


submission of the outline of the contribution: 31 May 2022


notification of acceptance: 25 July 2022


submission of full contributions: 15 January 2023


notification of acceptance: 31 March 2023


submission of final versions: 30 April 2023
