            Special Issue of Journal of Computational Linguistics
            and Chinese Language Processing

                    "Word Formation and Chinese Language Processing"

            Guest Editor: Richard Sproat, AT&T Labs -- Research

    Contributions are invited for a special issue of the Journal of
    Computational Linguistics and Chinese Processing on the topic of word
    formation and Chinese Language processing. Areas of interest include,
    but are not limited to:

                - Word formation in models of Chinese word segmentation and
                  named entity extraction. Areas of interest include automatic
                  detection of:

                          - morphologically productive constructions such as
                          - abbreviations (suoxie)
                          - personal names
                          - proper names of individuals, companies
                          - foreign words in transliteration.
                          - morphologically-based variation among human
                            segmenters and its relevance for Chinese segmentation

                - Computational or statistical work that lends insights on
                  linguistic questions, such as morphological productivity or the
                  formation of abbreviations.

                - Computational perspectives on the historical development of
                  morphological complexity in Chinese.

    The tentative plan is to publish this special issue as volume 8, issue
    2, August 2003.
