Call for Papers:

Computational morphology has become over the years one of the Computational
Linguistics subfields, with an annual competition, Morpho Challenge and a
recurring workshop, SigMorPhon. The objectives of the Morpho Challenge
evaluation campaigns are to compare the results and algorithms of various
morphological systems on a task of morpheme segmentation and analysis. The
competition involves five languages : English, German, Finnish, Turkish
and Arabic. The researches presented at the SigMorPhon workshops deal on
the whole with phonology and morphology.

Besides these objectives, systems centered on morphology produce other
information, of a linguistic nature, in the course of the processes they
perform. And these results are particularly relevant to the special issue
we propose. The issue aims at exploring the situation of morphology with
respect to its established interfaces such as:


but also its connections with cognitive processes and language acquisition.

Therefore, submitted papers should not be limited to the presentation of
results of competitions. Rather, the themes of this issue include all
studies dealing computationally with any complex matter related to
derivation or compounding. Original models of inflectional morphology are
also welcome. The studies can be concerned with the morphology of the
general language, but also with that of specialty domains languages.
Studies may have to do with French as well as with any other language in
the world; the described systems may be monolingual or multilingual.

Papers on specific applications in NLP and linguistics are also welcome,

* machine translation
* information retrieval
* terminology
* language typology
* dialectology
* evolution of languages and phylogenetics

All approaches are welcome, including rule-based methods, analogy-based
ones, or mixed approaches. They can involve unsupervised, semi-supervised
or supervised machine learning.

Practical Issues:

Contributions (25 pages maximum, PDF format) must also be sent by e-mail to
them. Style sheets are available on the Web site of the journal
