Translation Inference Across Dictionaries (TIAD) Shared Task & Workshop

The second shared task and workshop on Translation Inference Across Dictionaries (TIAD 2019) will be held in conjunction with the second conference on Language, Data and Knowledge (LDK 2019) in Leipzig, Germany, on May 20, 2019.

TIAD is aimed at exploring methods and techniques for generating new bilingual (and multilingual) dictionaries automatically from existing ones, while enabling reliable validation of the results obtained and solid comparison of the processes used.

Participants are invited to auto-generate new translations based on preexisting translations contained within the Apertium RDF graph, among language pairs of English, French and Portuguese, which are not directly connected in the graph. The results will be compared against manually compiled data of K Dictionaries and other resources, and presented during the workshop. For more information, visit https://tiad2019.unizar.es/index.html.

Globalex Workshop on Lexicography & Neologism

The Globalex Workshop on Lexicography and Neologism (GWLN 2019) will be held in conjunction with DSNA 22, the 22nd biennial meeting of the Dictionary Society of North America, at Indiana University, Bloomington, on May 8, 2019.

GWLN 2019 will focus on issues related to the detection of neologisms – including new words, new meanings of existing words, and new multiword units – and their representation in lexicography and dictionaries, such as:

·  How to find neologisms (corpus analysis and editorial means of identification; evaluation of data, e.g. blogs and chats)

·  How to interoperate lexicographic datasets with online resources and incorporate neologisms into the digital dictionary (the media, formatting, labeling, etc.)

·  How to deal with grammatical/orthographic/pronunciation variation (descriptive vs.prescriptive)

·  How to explain meaning with/without encyclopedic information, and how to use illustrations and audio-visual media

·  How differently, if at all, should neologisms be treated in different dictionary types (e.g. in historical comprehensive ones as opposed to those focusing on current usage; in monolingual vs. bilingual dictionaries; in special domain dictionaries)

·  How to deal with neologisms that are no longer new and those no longer used

·  How can dictionary users help with finding and informing about neologisms

The workshop will include 14 papers by 19 participants from Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Greece, Israel, Japan, Korea, Netherlands,South Africa, Spain, and the USA. The proceedings will be available online on the Globalex website and published as a special issue of the DSNA journal Dictionaries,and the abstracts will be published in Kernerman Dictionary News.

GWLN 2019 is co-organized by Annette Klosa-Kückelhaus (IDS, Institute of the German Language) and Ilan Kernerman (K Dictionaries).

DPS Integrated into KD Workflow

Six months after its initial introduction, the integration of DPS (Digital Processing System) dictionary writing tool into the editorial workflow of K Dictionaries is complete, with editors and translators utilizing the system for their projects since December 2018.

For many years, KD has relied almost entirely on its own self-developed working tools. The shift to DPS is part of a wider strategic move to reinforce and upgrade the data creation, manipulation and dissemination of Lexicala. Initial responses to the change from KD’s editors and translators have been positive and correspond to the successful implementation of DPS by KD in-house as well.

DPS, a leading content management solution for lexicographic resources in XML form, is powered by IDM and serves major dictionary makers worldwide. The system is designed to handle large datasets and significantly facilitates the editorial process, data processing and publication tasks.

Eleven New Interns from Istanbul University

Eleven students from the Department of Turkish at Istanbul University, led by Mehmet Gürlek, began a six-month internship program at K Dictionaries.

The main focus of their internship is related to KD’s Global Turkish Dictionary, of which Dr Gürlek is chief editor. The interns’ first task is to review corpora-based frequency lists of Turkish words, which will ultimately serve as a basis for the development of the list of headwords for the second part of this dictionary. Once the new headword list will be concluded, the students will be involved in various practical tasks regarding the compilation of new entries under the supervision of Dr Gürlek.

Mehmet Gürlek hastaken over the editorship of Global Turkish Dictionary in 2016, and he is also the convener of Asialex 2019

conference. The students participating in this project are Cansu Akkaya, Züleyha Altunkaynak, Gressaİpek Balcı, Ceren Görücü, Berkay Havuk, Yiğithan Kocaoğlu, Tahir Meylani, Kaan Tuglaci, Kaan Turan, Nazlican Turkmen and Necatican Yildirim.

The K Dictionaries internship program enables students of lexicography and related fields, such as linguistics, translation, language learning, data sciences, etc, to gain experience in hands-on lexical work, including research, compilation, translation, post-editing and quality assurance.

Linked Data Workshop @ KD - Success!

The linked data workshop held last week at the KD offices was a great success, helping KD team members to attain a broader understanding of Linguistic Linked Data concepts and RDF, and to establish a solid foundation for further development of Lexicala resources.

Besides expanding their background on Linked Data and gaining deeper insight into OntoLex-Lemon adaptations, the team took part in a hands-on session experimenting in mapping lexicographic data into RDF vocabularies by generating N-triples, uploading onto a triple-store (Fuseki), and querying the results using SPRQL.

It has been a pleasure to host once again Jorge Gracia (UNIZAR) and Julia Bosque-Gil (UPM), who brought along exceptionally mild and beautiful autumn days, and led a wonderful session.

Linked Data Workshop @ KD

Jorge Gracia (Universidad de Zaragoza) and Julia Bosque-Gil (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, UPM) will be visiting the K Dictionaries offices in Tel Aviv on November 25-26 to provide technical training on Linguistic Linked Data for the KD team.

The session will highlight the essentials of RDF (Resource Description Framework) serializations and the OntoLex-Lemon model, plan further conversion into RDF and JSON-LD of KD data sets from the Global series and other dictionaries, and linking of external resources in the context of the EU Horizon 2020-funded Lynx and ELEXIS projects.

The first KD data to be converted into RDF was the Global German lexical set, as part of an internship by Bettina Klimek from Leipzig University in 2014-2015, using the LEMON model. Then, the German, Spanish and English sets were converted in 2015-2016 for the LDL4HELTA project in line with the OntoLex model at the Ontology Engineering Group of UPM.

KD Starts Collaboration with IDM

IDM visited the KD offices in Tel Aviv last week, to introduce DPS (Digital Processing System) for implementation into KD’s workflow and to discuss future cooperation.

DPS is a leading solution for developing and publishing lexicographic resources in XML form, facilitating work for editors, translators and programmers, and allowing simultaneous work and better integration of the data. The KD team underwent intensive three-day training by IDM’s Allan Orsnes, and is starting to transfer work onto the DPS platform. The integration of DPS marks a major technical policy shift for KD, which has so far tended to rely almost entirely on its own in-house editorial, processing and dissemination tools, and the visit also served for planning further closer collaboration between KD and IDM.
