Creating Infrastructure For Canonical Typology


Description:
The Surrey Morphology Group proposes to bring together linguists from different perspectives to outline the issues relevant for the creation of an ontology for Canonical Typology in the form of a Community of Practice Extension (COPE) within the GOLD ontology for linguistics (Farrar and Langendoen 2003; see also: www.linguistics-ontology.org/gold.html). Contributions may address the following issues: the canonical criteria for defining different morphosyntactic features (case, gender, number, etc.); defining canonical criteria for syntax-morphology interaction (agreement, government, head, modifier, etc.); practical issues for the fieldworker; issues of computational implementation and reasoning. We invite papers on these and related topics from computational linguists, fieldworkers, typologists, as well as researchers working on ontologies.
