Topics of interest
The Workshop aims at gathering researchers in phonology and computer science.
More precisely, we would expect the active participation of more formally
oriented phonologists, and NLPers who apply or develop methods, tools,
etc wrt phonology. The workshop is also open to scientists who work at
the interface between phonology and other linguistic levels. Historical
linguists and typologists who work computationally are welcome, too.
- theoretical issues which concern the computer processing of phonologically
- standards for adequate representation of phonological data in machine readable
way, such as ARPAbet and X-SAMPA.
- implementation of phonological knowledge, such as: phonological rules,
interaction of phonology with morphology and/or suprasegmentals; development
of support software tools
- exploration of phonological structure: learning methods for phonological
rules, automatic or semi-automatic discovering of phonemic/phonetic dependenci
es in a context, feature-based analyses, acoustic measurements
- modeling of phonological behavior, e.g. speech errors, speech synthesis,
speech recognition, text-to-speech systems
- applications of computational phonology in historical linguistics, regional
languages and language contact
